A genuine gem of antiquity
This sideboard is not merely a furnishing element but a living testament to the greatness of Italian craftsmanship of the Liberty period. Every aspect, from the central sculpture of the cornice to the hunting scenes, from the worked glass to the carved surfaces, is designed to enchant and tell a story of artistic excellence and sophisticated design. A collector’s item desired by connoisseurs and lovers of high-level antiques, which enhances the style and taste of any environment.
Its exuberant design is expressed through a double body in mahogany, whose wood is carved with a visual richness that captures attention.
The cornice, dominating the center of the riser, features a sculpture depicting a pomegranate, a symbol of abundance and fertility, surrounded by lush leaves. This sculpture is not only an aesthetic masterpiece but also a demonstration of the skill in carving wood into complex and significant shapes.
The central and lateral glass doors, framed by delicate work, enhance the brightness and geometry of the glass, in stark contrast with the lush ornamentation of the rest of the furniture. The drawer beneath the riser, also carved with pomegranates, adds a touch of practicality to this piece, as sumptuous as it is functional.
The central compartment is decorated with monochrome prints depicting playful cherubs, images that evoke joy and lightness, while the lower, angled body contains two drawers and doors that masterfully narrate scenes of hunting. These deep and vivid carvings demonstrate a realism and artistic mastery that transport the viewer into a world of tradition and nature.
On the sides of the sideboard, small glass cabinets enhance the symmetry of the piece, providing exhibition space and conferring visual balance. Above them, the carved surfaces are a further testament to the precision and attention to detail of the craftsmen.
The colored and gilded, beveled and expertly worked glass adds a touch of color that blends with the warm tones of the mahogany, reflecting light and giving the environment a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
