French cabinet at Copenhagen auction

11 February 2014Written by Anne Crane

This 19th century French ormolu-mounted boulle side cabinet is attributed to the Paris-based ébéniste-marqueteur Mathieu Befort (1813-80).

Measuring 4ft 9in (1.46m) in width, it will feature in the sale to be held in Copenhagen by Bruun Rasmussen on February 26.

It is estimated to fetch around DKr300,000 (€40,000).
