Small Renaissance Cabinet

This small cabinet in walnut with two bodies opens with four front leaves and two richly decorated drawers. It rests on a molded base.

Scanned by a ternary rhythm, the two bodies consist of two symmetrically sculpted leaves. In the middle of the leaves appears a leafy mask surrounded by acanthus leaves, separated into four main scrolls. The two panels of the leaves are dimpled in a molded frame. The side uprights as well as the central frame are adorned at their top with a grimacing mask sticking out its tongue with a bifid beard. From these masks are born a cascade of vines and fruits, in particular apples and bunches of grapes, arranged symmetrically.

Windings of acanthus leaves decorate the two drawers of the central part, punctuated by three connecting dice where figures of putti are represented.

Two consoles support a molded and slightly overhanging cornice. The entablature is embellished, in its center, with a winged putto head and a harmonious vegetal decoration, composed of scrolls of acanthus leaves which wrap around each side of the figure of the putto.
The side panels are simply molded.

This cabinet stands out for its elegance and the quality of its sculpture. The motifs present on the friezes and on the panels are varied and the ornamentation is worked with refinement.
