Sunday Inspiration - Chinoiserie & Collections


I just found this photo above of a 1920s faux bamboo cabinet filled with an amazing collection of cinnabar, seashells, coral, and Mardi Gras crowns. Does anyone know the source? I suspect Tony Duquette or Hutton Wilkinson. It reminded me of this Chinoiserie cabinet below filled with a collection of coral, seashells, and blue and white Chinese porcelain.

I don't know whats better. The cabinet or the collection? The first photo is amazing and I think your dead on with your suspicion.
Let's see if anyone can identify...
