The legs are sabre-shaped and overturned truncated pyramid-shaped in the front, fixed in the frame with a strong tenon and mortise joint, and the pins of the legs are stuck in the frame. The external edge of the leaf door surrounds the hole of the corner unit and enhances the “s” shaped cornice. The display cabinet is polished with the same techniques of the 18th century and painted with water-based natural clays for the right shade, skilfully antiqued by stone and established with shellac applied with a brush. The furniture is finally protected with French virgin beeswax, spread with a soft cotton cloth.

We were impressed by the elegance of the furniture and its uniqueness, so we asked to the owner to reproduce a sample for our customers. By the courtesy of the owner, we retrieved detailed pictures, the shaping of outline, legs and cornices and technical dimensional drawings of the single leaf door display cabinet corner unit veneered in precious walnut, 18th-century Asolean Venetian - 19th-century Empire style.
