  • Long Description: "Panels of a simple chest framework are covered with carvings and intarsia. The front panel is richly decorated with intarsia imitating antiquity patterns, while both sides bear only stylised rosettes. The intarsia is extremely refined. The motif is well proportioned and skilfully adjusted to the front panel. Bright hues of maple veneer inlaid in the dark walnut background emphasise the entire composition. The extremely dynamic motif conception is artistically engraved and ebonised." (Tatjana Štefanič, mag. Boštjan Roškar)
