softwood, h 81cm × w 68.5cm × d 39cm More details

The work of many artists and workshops is combined in this cabinet. It is a typical product of the luxury industry of Augsburg, where costly pieces were produced for patrons throughout Europe. The balanced structure is aimed at showing the pietre dure mosaics to advantage. However, the unruly kwab style is present in a number of surrounds in ivory and silver-gilt.
