sculpted, carved and partially gilded walnut wood
The front of this piece of furniture shows a rich sculpted decoration, which is partially gilded, inspired by antiques, rendered with evident mannerist tones. At the center, within an oval frame surrounded by volutes, we can see Ceres while she gathers ears of wheat, flanked by athletic cherubs a by busts of important emperors. Pilasters adorned by masks complete the front’s decoration. The undertop strip with molded chamfers and a convex base carved into palmettes.
The top, antique but not pertinent, shows an imaginative wood carving with an oriental taste, with phytomorphic architectural elements.
