Cassone

Anonymous Southern German (?)ca. 1500 - assembled in the late 19th century

Bagatti Valsecchi Museum

Bagatti Valsecchi Museum

The two carved panels depicting a male and a female antique Roman bust, as well as the right and center pilasters and the wrought iron handles are from the 16th century, but did not come from the same object. Other pieces of antique wood were used to and integrated with then modern pieces at the end of the 19th century in order to create the cassone. Probably purchased by the brothers Fausto and Giuseppe at the end of the 19th century, the cassone is still displayed--as are all other objects in the museum--in its original place, thus contributing to the authentic "time capsule" ambiance.
