This rare cabinet from the Second Renaissance, richly carved is in an excellent state of conservation. It consists of two bodies of equal depth, showing four doors and two drawers on the belt. The cabinet is finely carved on a mannerist style, ornate with pomegranate patterns and arabesques.
The ornamentation is centred on the facade, imposing a frontal view. The variety of patterns as the scrollwork, foliage, leafs, arabesque, laurel wreath are coming for a large part, from Italy.
Distinguishing itself from the First Renaissance, that was showing most of the time grotesques and face portraits medallions, we can here enjoy the abundance of all the floral patterns array.
With its classical architectural proportions, this nice cabinet offers a particularly pure and seductive vegetal ornamentation.
