Faux Tortoise Cabinet by Henredon

USA, 1970s

Henredon chinoiserie style cabinet in a faux tortoise finish with brass hinges / closure and brass capped legs. The maker employed an oil drop lacquer finish technique which creates a stunning faux tortoise shell effect. The finish is quite durable as well. Some chips to the finish at edges (hard to see with the tortoise patter) and age appropriate oxidation to the brass hardware. The saffron-lacquered interior has a single drawer and a single shelf. This piece was recently featured in House Beautiful in an interior by Parker Kennedy Living.
