I’ve recently acquired a 1948 book about English furniture and on the first few pages was this regency bow front cabinet illustration.
The book is called ‘Introduction to English Furniture‘ by Charles W. Buckby and below is a scan of the front and back cover:

I found a regency piece quite similar on YouTube:
