Florentine Cassone, circa 1850, Italy

The Cassone is an element of medieval Florentine furniture, used until the artistic Renaissance, where it became a pretext for decorative paintings. In the 1850s, art dealers such as Bardini and Volpi had neo-renaissance coffers made by artists such as Ponziani or Frullini. Others will follow. Painted decoration, and pastiglia, foliage, flowers and fruits, gilding and grisaille on the top of the flap. Two shielded shields surround a portrait of Roman Emperor in the center. Similar model, but vintage, at the Getty Museum.
