About

The decoration of carving already appears in the fronts of bargueños and in the taquillones of 16th century and belong to Renaissance influence the inclusion of details used in architectural entablings of that style. However, the more vertical proportions than horizontal furniture are seen in those known as "Carlos V", which appear towards the second third. The Spanish taste for the panels and the carved moldings can be clearly seen in this example, and the marquetry of the interior of the desk resembles that of others made in Asturias. Of course, balusters and details of movement show the membership to the Baroque. Also known as "wardrobe cabinet", this type of furniture did not belong to strictly domestic furniture, but was used in public places or residences of major importance where they could be seen. For this value, examples like the present were not very common, but some very similar ones have been preserved in important private collections. Compare with a very similar example preserved in the Provincial Ethnographic Museum of Leon in Mansilla de las Mulas, but also can be related to others like the cupboard of the House Museum Lope de Vega in Madrid (inventory CE00234) of towards the end of the 17th century, Or the cabinet cupboard of the National Museum of Decorative Arts of Madrid (CE02504)." Size: 105 x 46 x 215 cms.
