16th Century Spanish Arquilla

"16th Century Spanish Arquilla"
An exceptional 16th Century Spanish walnut and boxwood table cabinet from Catalonia, also known as an arquilla. The fall is richly inlaid with bone, creating a decorative scene of two pedestal urns sprawling with flowers.
The lasting influence of Muslim artists during the 16th century in Iberia can be seen through the Islamic motifs on the top and sides of the cabinet. The interior contains five drawers, all with conforming bone inlay and retaining the original key.
