Catalogue Note

The contador, or cabinet on stand, exemplifies Portuguese furniture designs from the 17th Century and later.  The carved undulating pattern, pierced gilt-lacquer brass fixtures, pierced apron and elaborately turned legs are all characteristic elements of this form. A comparable example is illustrated in H. Hayward, World Furniture, Middlesex, 1965, p. 105 fig. 365.
