A Louis XV style curved display case in rosewood, amaranth and satinwood veneer, decorated with diamond-shaped friezes, marquetry of knotted flowers and flower vases. Satinwood is an exotic wood with a yellow background and red or yellow-grey and grey-green veins, used in cabinetmaking or marquetry. When polished, it gives a satin sheen, hence the name "satin". Amaranth and rosewood are tropical woods that were widely used in the 18th century for marquetry, allowing shimmering compositions.

Our display case features fine ornamentation of gilded and chased bronzes decorated with jagged acanthus leaves, shells and flowers. It stands on four scrolled, leafy feet. This piece of furniture opens on the front with two glass doors at the top, a tilting drawer forming a secretary with two other small drawers inside, and two glass doors at the bottom. The two display cabinets reveal a curved interior, with three shelves for displaying tableware and collectibles.
