Italian 16th Century Carved Walnut “Lion” Cassone

A vigorously carved homage to the animal kingdom’s rulers over earth, air and sea, the Italian Cassone of Sarcophagus form with a stepped, molded top, a rare and unusual piece, more object than furniture,  with its sculpted Lions, Eagles, Dolphin feet, and coat of arms. A wonderful example of Italian Renaissance Furniture.
