The silverware cabinet was built just to house the cutlery trays proceeding from antique silverware set (original box decayed) and was completed on 29.03.1995. It was totally hand carved resembling to a travelling chest on trestle (bridge shaped), according to my personal interpretation of the 17 th. Century Spanish style. The cylindrical parts had been previously turned before being carved. It was made out of irregular rosewood pieces (from different species) retrieved from scraps left in old farms. All the four faces are carved. The pair of bronze handles attached to the sides had been bought in an antique shop in 1989. The finishing was done with a personally prepared wax (carnauba, bee’s wax, turpentine, etc.). The project was entirely drawn by me. Only hand tools were used except for the large board sawing and for the turning. The total time for completion (2 years and 3 months) includes many interruption gaps (months).
Dimensions: 30” high x 25” wide x 18” deep
