R.J. Horner Figural China Cabinet

Published by at 9:40 pm under RJ Horner

Up for sale is an RJ Horner Quartersawn Oak China cabinet from the 1880’s timeframe. Looks to be in good original condition with original wavy glass. I like the Caryatid/Atlas juxtaposition. Often you see pieces with similar figures on both sides. I’ll leave the description to Bradford’s Antiques, the seller, but the listing ends March 16th.
