Description

Rare and beautiful sideboard designed by the great Gino Rancati in the 1950s, of fine Italian manufacture. The sideboard comes from a very important private house in the Milan area, which housed a very wealthy family, who bequeathed us this beautiful sideboard.
The sideboard is made through the use of excellent fine woods.
The base is made thanks to a wooden slab above which stand 7 sinuous feet, with a golden leaf on each in brass perfectly in patina.
At the ends we notice two doors that open sideways, made thanks to the technique of grising on wood. Both are unique compartments for storing even larger objects.
The particularity of the sideboard lies in its central doors, which are made thanks to under elevated ashlars with brass inserts.Simply fantastic. The two central doors open like a book and contain a shelf each, which gives the possibility of having two distinct shelves. Centrally there are 4 pull-out drawers with round brass knobs, gorgeous!
Magnificent and important workmanship. The top is rectangular and is made entirely of a beautiful light marble with pink hues, very beautiful.
The sideboard is suitable for important and classical areas, given its majestic eccentricity.
