Counters

The counters are regarded throughout Europe as the most luxurious and characteristic seventeenth-century furniture.

The counters are intended to keep precious objects. They are consisted by two bodies: the box (or crate), filled with drawers of several sizes (although appear to be equal) and stand or trivet.

The wood "Pau Santo" allows turned bold, full of movement of large bulges to thin disk bottlenecks and creased, with no equivalent in other countries.

The shaky and carving combine in games of light and shade, characteristic of the Baroque. Become important large sheet metal, cut and cast that light up the dark wood.
