Provenance: Vallo di Diano, SA, Southern Italy
Description: Rustic table in rustic built with native wood mixed area. Standing chestnut, plane and horizontal elements in spruce, fir tipping elements. Built with good mastery it is a solid table and is intended to last in time even if made of wood with no high durability in the plane and in the horizontal elements.
Restoration: The cabinet was in poor storage conditions. Attacked so it extended by wood-eating insects, and covered with numerous re-painting series that hid fillings and patches distributed throughout the table. The table was completely stripped to bring the original wood to “breathe” and can be treated against wood insects.
