"Small Chest In Fruit Wood And Blackened Wood, Decorated"
Small chest with upper flap and drawer hidden in the plinth, in blackened wood and fruitwood, worked "a certosina". Three ivory plaques: one decorated with a coat of arms to be defined on the front, another on the top representing a fight between two children, and another at the back (very elaborate, which is rather unusual) in decoration of a scene of allegiance to a king seated on a throne, with in the distance what appears to be an entombment (of Christ?). A drawer is hidden in the plinth. Four square-section legs support the whole. An interior arrangement was made afterwards, in green canvas, and the fittings of the flap were polished. No key Very fine Venice ensemble, end of the 16th century.
