Model Description

Model Structure

The blue Tyrolean wardrobe is set up with 1 clothes pole and 1 lower shelf. It is decorated with stylized flowers that recall the fashion and typicality of the furnishings painted in the Val di Sole towards the end of the 1600s. The decorations of the upper frame are in shades of blue and red and the sides are painted with a threaded outline in white shades, light blue and dark blue.

Raw Material

The small coat hanger is made of solid fir, a soft wood typically used in Trentino workshops for furnishings painted in Alpine and Tyrolean style. It is hand painted with polychrome water-based tempera.


The Tyrolean coat hanger is designed, built and decorated by hand in the Vangelista Mobili 1960 high cabinet-making workshop. The back is worked with a cross frame, which gives greater value to the product. The cabinet is hand painted with natural products and lacquered with a mixture of Gesso Bologna and hydrated calcium sulphate, which is applied with a spatula and consumed by hand to give the product, after the mixture has dried, the antique effect. The next phase of the decoration is the most important: the wardrobe is hand painted with water-based polychrome tempera using a series of very fine bristle brushes. When the decorations are dry, a brown earth powder is applied with a dry brush which, penetrating into the crepes of the Bologna plaster, creates an antique effect very similar to the original model. The paintings are then fixed with French shellac varnish applied with a brush, while the final protection with turpentine-based virgin beeswax is applied with a soft cotton cloth. The decorations are re-proportioned by hand on each structural element of the piece of furniture
