Antique dresser inlaid

Art. 10-1614

Length: 128 cm

Depth: 60 cm

Original dresser from the early 19th century. The style of this artifact is reminiscent of Neoclassicism, which spread in Italy around 1775.

The clues that lead us to place it in that period are the carvings on the front of the three drawers, which have been drastically scaled down, reducing them to the function of a simple decoration with a plant motif, often only hinted at, a pretext for digressing into curls and small scrolls not always clearly recognizable as branches and leaves.


This piece represents a kind of domestic decor produced in the province for wealthy patrician families, owners of villas in the countryside between Veneto and Lombardy.

The structure of the dresser is made of fine walnut wood, carved by engraving on the front of the drawers, and the decoration later was filled with plaster to create the inlay effect.

This technique was used by country carpenters who were not at all skilled in the inlay technique.


The chest of drawers underwent conservative restoration given its excellent condition.
