A pair of gorgeous and rare antique Italian cabinet of curiosities displays, 19th century.

 

This is a remarkable pair of antique displays that once adorned a private cabinet of curiosity in Florence dating from the 1800's. They are magnificent displays consisting of hand carved and partially gilded wood bases like urns with natural sea sponges in the shape of large mushrooms. Such natural curiosities were precious embellishments in prominent homes and palaces of the past. They were a true fascination of many collectors as well as naturalists, decorators and jewellery makers. This is a great example of such decorative ingenuity and craftsmanship that is extremely rare to find these days. Delightful and majestic in their appeal this glorious pair of such adornments is intriguing today as it was a century and a half ago when it was created. Such treasures are a "jewel in the crown" of interior decorating as they are graceful and fascinating in so many ways. They would look just marvellous as an original display in bathrooms, home offices, study rooms or placed within book shelves for example. 

 

Sold as a pair with each one measuring about 28 x 20.5 x 18 cm or approximately 11 x 8 x 7 inches. They are in great antique condition with minor signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward their true beauty and splendour today. They are exactly as I discovered them during one of my trips to Italy. For the full condition please refer to the images!

 

This is an outstanding antique treasure for a stylish and unique interior!
