Proposed Badminton Cabinet Purchase (Above)

A British Petro's high net worth client from the United Arab Emirates is planning to offer US$77,000,000 for the above Badminton Cabinet and purchase the furniture from its actual owner.

The Badminton Cabinet sold for US$36 million at a Christie's auction in 2004, and still holds the reign of the most expensive furniture piece ever sold.

It has been called the greatest work of the Grand Ducal workshops and the last great work of art made in Florence under the Medici family.

Inlays of brilliantly colored lapis lazuli, amethyst quartz, red and green jasper and other semi-precious stones portray birds flitting among sprays of flowers and ribbons.

Bronze foliage is encrusted with hard-stone fruit. Lions, grotesques, and satyrs appear on drawer fronts and doors. The Four Seasons are rendered in bronze, along with the coat of arms of the English aristocrat for whom the cabinet was created.

Henry Somerset, the third duke of Beaufort, was only 19 in 1726, when he passed through Florence on his grand tour of Europe. He stayed a week and ordered the piece, making a rare private commission at the Medici workshop. The cabinet required about six years and 30 expert craftspeople, according to Christie's catalogue entry. Documents record that the duke paid 500 pounds, plus 94 pounds in duty.

Purchase Will Be Fully Financed:
The British Petro International
(US $77,000,000.00)
