This small-sized and curvy bureau cabinet of typical Venetian craftsmanship with flap, doors and drawers, comes from a Venetian palace.
The piece shows a curious combination of Barocchetto and Venetian Rococò. The woodwork, however, has warmer tones thanks to the thuja wood veneer and lacquer. Typically the furniture in this style is painted with light tones and floral / wildlife motifs instead.
The stylistic friezes and motifs typical of the style, the finely carved feet and cymatium are highlighted with darker shades and contrasting lacquer.
The cabinet consists of two parts, one on top of the other, secured to the base with wooden inserts.
Locks and keys are original.
The piece is in original patina (unrestored).
A tiny part (2 cm) of the side frame is missing.
It might have some scratches due to ageing.
