With a bit of luck one still can find some pretty exiting examples of untouched antique craftmanship in this part of italy. This is an typical example of a walnut dresser in which the dowry of the bride was contained.
It is interesting to note that the wood has little evidence of woodworm attack. In my experience it seems thet the older the wood is the less it is subject to woodworm . The wallnut cut during the 19th century is allways full of worm holes. Maybe it has to do woth the amount of carbon dioxide in the air when the tree grew….
