    Beautiful Dutch cupboard with a lot of wood inlay.
    Several animals as crows, a mouse etc.
    Very early Art Deco with some Art Nouveau influence.
    Love the crows.

      Thanks mustangtony and officialfuel !!

      Does this fall into the 'Amsterdamse School' or is it earlier/later? Love the crows!
    3. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 7 years ago
      Some might disagree but I would say no.
      This is Art Deco and those terms get mixed up by a lot of people.
      For real Amsterdamse School, type ''Tuschinsky'' in Google. That is a theatre in Amsterdam in Amsterdam School style.
      You'll see it's far more vibrant/extravagant than Art Deco.

      It is an amazing cabinet! The round inlays with the animals inside do remind me of Paul Hankar's house in Brussels (only they were made in stone there).

    10. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 7 years ago

      i knew i was going to love this one also after i saw the desk posting and you mentioned crows -- goodness -- i love those birds -- this is a real beauty also -- you have GREAT taste
    14. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 7 years ago
      Thanks epson for the compliment. I love the crows too. Better than the white doves on the desk. Even the branch on which the crows stand and the background are beautiful in detail and inlay.
    15. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 7 years ago
      Thanks czechman and toolate2.

      super piece top inlay .....speechless
    18. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 7 years ago
      You should see it in real life. It is so much more beautiful than on the photo and a lot better and more beautiful than the desk with the doves. Really. Don't mean to brag.
    19. artislove artislove, 7 years ago
      i believe you bazelmania in real life you also get the smell wich can be nice too
    20. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 7 years ago
      Oh yes. Old oak never stinks.

      I would have bought the desk too, but I am totally besotted with this piece of furniture. Whatever you paid for it, it wasn't enough.
      From a UK point of view it looks very arts and craft, like it was made for Liberties.
    22. Bazelmania Bazelmania, 6 years ago
      That is very true.
      The cupboard was 650 euro. The desk I rejected at 2625 euro.

      Today i spotted the cover of a wendingen about Radio Kootwijk from 1923, made by Luthmann. On the cover you see a similar style of animals in roundels like on your cupboard.. Maybe he also did the wood carving on your cupboard?

      Thanks for the info from Amsterdam.
      The animals on ''Wendingen are quite simular''. Who designed that cover? Do you know?
