Amaranth and rosewood are tropical woods widely used in the 18th century marquetry, and allowing to execute opulent compositions.

The vitrine opens by two glass doors in the upper part, a drawer forming secretary with two other small drawers inside, and two glass doors in the lower part. Its large interior with wood shelving make it the perfect display piece for tableware and collectibles.
