Amelander kast

This cabinet is a very nice version of a Frisian five-door cabinet and is called "Amelander kast".
 
The two upper doors with two arches and the cubes cut out of solid wood is typical of the Frisian cabinets from that time.
 
In the middle a niche, the so-called "secreetje". A secret cupboard that can only be opened from the inside.
 
The richly executed door, carved like a flower still life. Such a flower still life was at that time called a "blompot".
 
In this "blompot" carving is the year 1652, which is rare.
 
In the Frisian Maritime Museum in Sneek you can admire a similar cabinet.
 
Literature: North - Dutch furniture, from renaissance to early baroque 1550 - 1670 written by Loek van Aalst and Annigje Hofstede.
