An elaborate lady’s cabinet dressing table, circa 1792, designed by Sheraton (1751-1806) and commissioned by Queen Maria Luisa de Parma of Spain is on the stand of López de Aragón, Madrid. The piece, made of several woods, is an outstanding example of intricate craftmanship. A portrait of the Spanish Queen is on the stand of Caylus, Madrid.

The panels were originally in the Grand Salon at Chateau La Trousse, France. Vanderven & Vanderven Oriental Art, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, are showing an exceptionally rare pare of Chinese porcelain double gourd vases, Kangxi period (1662-1722).
