In good condition, with minor signs of wear
This Neapolitan glass cabinet, made between 1780 and 1830, has a unique neoclassical style. It was created to display the holy crib and it was placed in the most representative area of the houses of the upper and middle class of that period. In modern times, it is also used as a showcase for precious or antique objects. The side columns have ivory final sections.
Size: height 120 cm (including a frieze of 15 cm which can be removed), width 62 cm, depth 40 cm.
Inside, there is a reconstruction of a view of the house, but the background can be replaced or removed, thanks to the rear panel which can be opened.
There are also 2 inner lights to illuminate the interior of the glass cabinet.
The cabinet was reviewed by Vincenzo Rizzo, art historian and expert in Neapolitan artefacts made between the 17th and the 18th century.
