Hand Crafted Showcase
I would assume that whoever built this showcase cabinet was familiar indeed with aspects of design from the arts & crafts movement. Particularly, there are exposed tenons at the top of each front leg; and there is a gentle reverse taper to the legs; there is a Harvey Ellis influence to the curvature on the top element and at the top of the door)
Besides design, for some there would be the advantage gained by being able to access the interior through a front door, thus enabling the cabinet to against a wall or the like, whereas most showcases are accessible from the back side.
