Edirnekari Cabinet

ottoman edirnekari cabinet 18c, 19c

Edirne was (and still is) the cradle of decorators and designers of furniture in Ottoman Empire. That is why works done by artisans of Edirne are called Edirnekari. A really old and undamaged Edirnekari furniture can be worth in gold.

This late 18th early 19th century Edirnekari cabinet is a good example of the craftsmanship of the time. I deeply regret I was unable to find a close up photo to show you details.

Dimensions: 33x76x195 cm.

Estimated value: $ 15,000
