Born in Germany, Levien began prospecting for exotic furniture timbers in South America and New Zealand, finally settling in London in 1844. Most of his output seems to have employed conventional woods. The acquisition of this jewel-cabinet reflects the royal couple’s pronounced taste for porcelain-mounted furniture in the French style.
