"As the art of chinoiserie was quite challenging to achieve in England at this time so a similar technique known as "japanning" was created as a result, with the major difference being the decoration is applied directly to the ebonized surface without any raised effect. It is important to remember that all interiors were lit using blazing fires in open hearths, as well as a multitude of candles so the reflective capacity of furniture surfaces was of paramount importance. In this cabinet the quotient quality lies in both the decorative finish as well as the elaborate quality of the construction. This cabinet showcases the taste for Oriental exoticism that began during the 1600's amongst the aristocratic classes in Europe. The entire cabinet and stand are painted deepest black in order to simulate the colour of imported ebony while then being decorated with raised figures and scenes in gold and colour in true Chinoiserie where the scene is built up using gesso that could be moulded to create a sculptural effect before being gilded and painted.
