Italian Cabinet

This rosewood cabinet, made in Ravenna, boasts ebony and ivory features.

The ebony veneer and ivory inlay complement panels set with lapis lazuli, quartz, amber, tortoiseshell and pietra dura.

Lapis lazuli is prized for its intensely blue colour; pietra dura is an art involving the interlocking of cut and polished stones.
