A Carved Italian Cassone, Late 18th C.
An Italian late 18th century carved wood cassone trunk. This antique cassone from Italy features an ornately hand-carved front center panel with mythical sea creatures flanked by a pair of faces set into front, side panels. This rectangular shaped trunk is presented on a pair of crescent-shape carved adjoining dolphin heads in front with two back bracket feet. The backside of this piece remains unadorned, so best use would be against a wall. This magnificent 18th century Italian cassone would be handsome place at the foot of a bed, or perhaps resting atop a large dresser or console table.Dimensions
