Model Description

Model Structure

The precious display cabinet corner unit in walnut has a single leaf door divided into 2 parts, the upper part with crystal cut glass for bookshelf or glassware, in the lower part it is enclosed by a panel, in order to keep not displayed objects. The protruding cornice and the double clog’s processing are typical of Piedmontese 17th-century furniture, Luigi XIV style.

Raw Material

The frame of the precious single leaf door display cabinet corner unit in walnut is made of walnut wood, the inlays are veneered in walnut (with a thickness of 4 mm) with an inlaid thread in exotic polychrome rosewood, ebony and maple food, The back and the inner part are made of limewood, whereas the single leaf door is in cut crystal glass and the accessories like the hinges or the keyhole covers are made of brass poured in casting moulds.


The display cabinet corner unit is assembled with strong tenon and mortise joints. The frame, as well as the leaf door, is enriched by some visible nails made of oak, fixed next to the joints. The leaf door is processed by framework and it has an “S” shaped inner cornice, the lower panel is inlaid in a herringbone pattern, embellished by an inlaid thread with a geometric decoration in precious exotic woods. The leaf door’s closure is assembled with a high-value vertical locking rod, in order to maintain the best stability over time. The cornice is considerably shaped and protruding, as well as the skirting, as the furniture in vogue during the 17-th century, Luigi XIV style. The corner unit is hand-polished with the techniques of the period, with water-based natural clays for the right shade, softly antiqued by stone and established with shellac applied with a brush, final protection with brown virgin beeswax spread with a soft cotton cloth.

Historical notes and mobile curiosities

During our visit to the amazing Masino castle in Caravino, Torino, we immediately noticed a couple of 17th-century Piedmontese Luigi XIV style beautiful display cabinet corner units at the entrance, and we decided to reproduce one of them for a customer. By the courtesy of FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano), who controls and manages the castle and the whole estate, we retrieved the main features and details to reproduce the display cabinet corner unit: the shaping of the cornice and the clog on plywood, technical dimensional drawings and detailed pictures of the inlays. Thanks to our love for classic furniture and our high-demanding clientele, we are one of the few Italian companies able to reproduce perfect reproductions with customizable sizes, type of wood and polishing. Vangelista Mobili 1960 reflects the real 100% luxury Made in Italy.
