17th Century Painted Sacristi Cabinet from Spain
Outstandingly beautiful ‘Reliquary’ or Sacristi Cupboard/Cabinet from Spain. Dating from the late 17th- early 18th century , the pine and fruitwood cabinet’s main feature are the fabulously hand- painted doors designed to be seen from the outside. In the outer remains of very old paint, the cabinet might originally have displayed a reliquary or processional figure such as a saint or virgin. The inside of the cabinet also has painted or stencilled motifs and has old shelf supports still attached so that possibly at another time it was also used more as a cupboard in a church for storing the priests’ vestments etc.
The primary photo shows a female figure from my own collection to give an example of the display potential..
