Carlo Bugatti, Mural Secretary, circa 1890-1900


This mural secretary is the work of Carlo Bugatti, an Italian artist who excelled in cabinet making and goldsmithing. Composed of a circular mirror, the latter is framed in brown wood with geometric and vegetal decoration with metal inlays. The secretary's body has a triangular shape with a small workbench for writing a small storage unit with a succession of drawers that can be used to place writing tools. The metal inlays represent stars with a pellet in the centre. All the inlay work reflects Bugatti's great technicality. This wall secretary evokes an oriental musical instrument. Bugatti was also a manufacturer of musical instruments which explains this stylistic choice concerning this piece of furniture.
