Manka, oak sideboard – 18ᵗʰ century – Basque Country – [MP015]
This oak sideboard comes from the Basque Country where it is called “manka”.
Basque mankas, therefore, are characterized by the fact that their tray opens onto a large chest. This offers more storage space than the usual drawers.
Another particularity of the mankas: the top of the doors is arched.
