carved and sculpted walnut wood and briar
Rigorous example of Venetian baroque, this large piece of furniture attains a perfect architectural equilibrium through an alternation of frames, panels and pilasters. The upper part is embellished by drawers designed as support of a candlestick; below them we find two tilting flaps separated by pilasters that taper downwards, and a central decoration with briar inlaying. On the lower part the sideboard features two doors that superimpose another four doors, in their turn separated by pilasters and decorated by panels arranged so as to contrast with the upper ones.
