A lovely and early walnut cassone with original single planked top of good colour and patination and most attractive gadrooned carving to the front panel and bottom frieze, with beautifully carved oak leaf and vine borders and centred with a oak leaf carved crest with phoenix and badger, and with distinctive carved shields to each side panel with original large iron carrying handles. The front feet original also and attractively formed with deeply carved borders. The back feet depleted with age and now supported by later braces which are solid and robust.

The cassone, like most Italian furniture of this period, has had woodworm and depletions. The woodworm is long since treated and dead but has left scars and some later sections of timber have been cut in to replace damaged sections as shown on our photographs. The top of the coffer has a slight smile to it which adds to its charm and does not affect use. The top rises smoothly on large and early iron hinges.

A lovely cassone, of superior colour and with a richly aged patination.

A beautiful and practical piece of early walnut furniture.
