About

Renaissance dressoir, dresser or credenza, cabinet furniture representative of the influence of the discovery of America in 1492 and stylistic codes of the time: the low part, topped with 2 drawers with motives of cartouches, supports cabinet by flat fluted pilasters joined by an arcature with frieze and flowers in spandrels. This credenza opens to three set back leaves, two columns representing a native american couple with feather headdress supporting, by capitals in volute, a stately cornice with friezes motives and slender arches. The central door leaf, with mascaron motif, opens by a secret drawer, locks being hidden in the sliding side doors and richly decorated with cartouches of american indian heads.
