Walnut pantry cabinet - 19th century - Provence
Called in its region of origin the “mangeadou”, this cabinet was intended for the storage of food in its upper part, ventilated for this purpose.
In the lower part you could store dishes and kitchen utensils.
In the middle, two drawers received the cutlery.
We recognize on this cabinet of character the jewels of Provençal ornamentation, namely:
- the soup tureen lined with olive branches at the top center,
- the fruit bowl, the olive branches and the foliage rolled up on the bottom crosspiece, perforated to highlight and enhance them.
