Catalogue Note

Matthijs Horrix (1735-1809) became Meester Kabinetwerker in The Hague in 1764, quickly becoming the principal supplier of furniture to the Stadthouder's Court between 1767 and 1795. His oeuvre betrays influences that are both English and French, evident from the use of exotic veneer or lacquer panels, and from the design of the piece - in this case, a typically Transitional one.
