About

Valzania, armoire made in parchment, brass, mahogany and ebonized wood, Italy, circa 1935. This grand wardrobe made with parchment, is a unique piece, both in its design and in the use of material. The piece in this exquisite condition and size is a very rare find. The grand pieces do not often appear on the market. The parchment is made with goatskin, as was parchment originally made. The parchment is attached in various squares, giving the piece a geometric, grand aesthetics. The body is held up with ebonized wooden squares. The hinges on the two doors are made by round brass with decorative Greek etching. The inside has a lot of storage space and compartments and is made in veneered mahogany with shelves, drawers and a bar to hang up clothes. The armoire looks as if it came from an emperor or empress as it is very stunning and mighty. The design by Valzania has often been related to the aesthetics of Guglielmo Ulrich.
