Splendid display cabinet in precious wood and glass from the Nazi period, taken over from a house in Milan formerly occupied by the Furher.
History tells us that when Nazism reached Italy, the Furher’s Nazi groups occupied houses, with or without the consent of the owners, where they held their meetings and discussed secret affairs. This piece of furniture was recovered by the owner of one of those houses, who found himself this wonderful Nazi relic.
The cabinet is made entirely of precious wood with a glass display case.
There are four very sinuous S-shaped wooden support legs. These legs support a rectangular wooden frame, which in front shows four doors, joined in pairs, so that when they open you can easily access all the compartments inside. Internally there are two shelves that cover the entire length of the product. The shelves show wonderful workmanship on the edge, beautifully crafted, in fact we see indentations and spikes, making the whole thing very elegant and sinuous. The interior panelling is made of a very beautiful and elegant dark blue and fuchsia floral wallpaper, also with grisaille work.
There are also two wooden elements that divide the shelves into three different spaces, but still leave them open.
The glass in front is very beautiful and resistant, there are wooden decorations that make the glass even more marvellous: these are very sinuous and create a sort of pointed rhombus, with sinuous curves on the lines.
Going up we find a frieze frame made of grissinato wood, with an invisible concealed drawer, very useful at the time to hide secret documents. Above this lies the smooth, polished top. Above this we see two small rectangular frames of the same wood, with frosted glass on the front. Both open and serve as containers. Between these two small structures show dark spheres on the inner side from which a very elegant worked shelf, like the inner ones, emerges.
The sideboard is very beautiful and steeped in history.
