Provenance:

Jonkvr(ouw) Ricardus by legacy to “Gasthuis Delft”, donated to Museum Delft, auctioned in Utrecht in 2019.

Note:
Undecorated Japanese lacquered cabinets with silver mounts are highly unusual. The present one was undoubtedly explicitly ordered by a Dutch VOC official based in Japan, on the small artificial island of Decima. In the mid-17th-century black ebony furniture with silver mounts was popular in the Netherlands
