Imposing Florentine cassone carved and molded walnut 16th century.
It has on the front a very beautiful carved interlacing decoration, enhanced in the center by a coat of arms placed in a medallion formed of a wreath of laurel leaves.
At the corners two powerful feet in the shape of a lion's paw.
The sides are also carved with interlacing and geometric patterns and have their original wrought iron handle.
The tray is surrounded by a gadrooned frieze.
This very large cassonne is a beautiful testimony of the Tuscan furniture that could be found in the apartments of wealthy Florentine families at the end of the Renaissance.
A small lack in front of the lower right (which can be restored by ourselves)
Historical Annecdote: According to our research the blazon would be the Duranti, rich Florentine family cited in the book Ciabani, the district of Santa Croce (see photo).
