Chinese Lacquer Cabinet


Picture: Chinese Lacquer Cabinet

The two cabinets in the central pavilion of Nymphenburg were redesigned in 1763/64 under the direction of François Cuvilliés the Elder.

He had both rooms made smaller and the ceilings decorated with stucco-work by Franz Xaver Feichtmayr; the room on the south side was turned into a lacquer cabinet featuring a Chinese screen made of Coromandel lacquer, probably purchased by Elector Max Emanuel, and panels by the porcelain maker Johann Härringer.
