In good original condition, some losses to inlay, would benefit from some attention

This piece is attributed to Giuseppe Parvis (1831-1909). Born in Bremen in Lombardy, he studied at the Accademia Albertina in Turin. In 1859 he settled in Cairo where he made and sold furniture. He gained international fame following the Universal Expositions in Paris in 1867, Philadelphia in 1876, Milan in 1881 and Turin in 1884, especially with his Egyptian revival style pieces.
