Book Description
The cabinet is the epitome of magnificent form and luxurious techniques, amongst the most treasured of all items of furniture in keeping with its basic purpose, to store, protect and conceal everything more precious. Defined as a chest with compartments and drawers, the cabinet has a long pedigree. This complete historical study begins with examples of chests on this heritage to the Byzantine world, but it was in the Renaissance that the west adopted fine cabinets as luxury items, as prized as the objects they contained. The fifteenth-century studio was a centerpiece of the correspondingly embellished.
