That is definately not my picture. I had posted a picture of a German 52x72x20 shrunk with double doors with cameos of a man and woman on each door perspectively with initials over the male and 1842 over the female with continued vignettes of birds and flowers on sides and lower doors. I will try to attach a pic for you.
Gosh this is beautiful. Thank you for the extra effort to share this.
This small German paint decorated and faux marble, possible marriage, schrank dated 1842, may well be from the Bavaria area. The faux-marbled cornice and trim with hand painted portraits and birds are beautifully executed and the original paint is in great condition. The size is much smaller than many that are found from the period but the coloration and handling of the detail are quite classic. This would have a value in the range of 1200.00-1500.00 on the fine antique market currently looking at World wide auction data of the last three years.
However if you sold this, I would highly encourage a sale at a high end auction house where this may bring a bit more. The date and the markings are all significant and the piece is enhanced by the provenance which should be recorded and tucked inside. Wonderful.
Best wishes, Dori
