Around the end of the 17th century, china cabinet manufacturing began in England during the reign of King William and Queen Mary, who adopted the idea from the Netherlands. At the start of the 18th century, furniture makers began designing and creating china cabinets in Britain. Shops then started opening all around Europe, and America quickly followed suit.

One could argue that the most vital piece of a china cabinet is the glass windows. Without these glass windows, the items on the inside could not be so beautifully displayed. The intended use for a china cabinet is to display fine china, and valuables to add that extra touch to the room such as gravy boats or crystal wine glasses. For this reason, it's of the utmost important to care for the glass.
