This special Italian Art Deco highboard from the 1950s is a refined eye-catcher that you should process for a minute. A typical type of wood for the manufacture of high-quality furniture from that period is Macassar ebony. This object is completely veneered with it and this particularly high-quality veneer has been professionally applied, whereby a certain degree of aesthetics has determined whether the flame drawing in the wood takes a horizontal or vertical direction. This, of course, also determines the drama of the piece, but more on that in a moment.
The beautifully proportioned legs have a horizontal drawing and are provided with a special decorative element in the middle in the form of two silver bands. These are beautifully brushed steel inlaid plates and give a special contrast to the wood. The widest part of the cabinet is on the legs, which can be opened and closed with a nickel lock and key. A cylindrical handle with silver painted rings is placed just below. After opening this cabinet door, which falls forward with brass hinges, we see a completely natural veneered interior.
One level up is the real pièce de résistance of this pleasant appearance. The facade is adorned with a beautiful burl wood veneer accompanied by a steel knob and nickel lock. The other side of the door is veneered in a lacquered maple wood and the drama continues once we take a look at the back wall of the cabinet. This is covered with mirrors and a square mirror in the middle creates a division of the space. And last but not least the two veneered parts on both sides complete the entire piece.
The condition is completely consistent with age and use but only has a superficial scratch and stain. Some old woodworm traces are restored. The color of the veneer is stunning and very lively.
