condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Spain/Italy
model name / number: Vargueno
size / dimensions: 3.6" by 5.25" by 8"

Uncommon 19th century vintage Renaissance revival of a Spanish/Italian Vargueno miniature/salesman/toy cabinet. See size measurements below.

Hand painted polychrome on leather of Renaissance King and Queen with crowns, Cornucopia, arabesque and scoll motifs. Amazing artistry, rendering a mellow and sophisticated 3-D like effect on the painted surfaces. Hand hammered steel strap work and side handles to protects and cradle this little jem.

This treasure would surely complement to your French Louis XV/XVI, George/Georgian, Regency, American/Canadian Federal, Victorian or doll's house collection -- or the start to your historical collection to share and experience with your friends and family -- while having investment potential.

All original and beautiful century plus old patina. Craquelure leather with hand painted surface. Original antique condition, without any previous alterations or damage. Comes with its original ancient double Eagle locking mechanism.

I would consider fair trades in authentic and legitimate: gold/platinum coins/scrap; Audemars Piguet, Blancpain, Breguet, Cartier, Dali Jewellery, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega Speedmaster; Philippe, Rolex or Vacheron Constantin; Picasso prints; or high-end HiFi tube amp.

Rent to movie industry or business available.
