Dowel peg joinery is accompanied at all style, and rail intersections as the primitive method used of the period. carved into the mantel cornice at left and right is the presence of carved monks representing the religious theme. The single central door is accompanied by gothic hand forged latch that is fully functional. Condition throughout the cabinet is excellent with little to no loss. Carvings at all panels are from one solid piece of wood. This means the carver had to remove as much as 50% of the Material to accomplish high depth detail.
