Facade of the seventeenth sacristy cabinet

Very nice front end of Louis XIII armoire in walnut, four square wings separated by three drawers. Definitely a sacristy cabinet although the cross there is not present, the doors of the top original carved a flaming heart, symbol of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and those at the bottom of a vase of chrysanthemums , symbol of the Holy Spirit. These motifs carved on the panel of one board are each in garlands decorations, scrolls and swags dear to the Renaissance and show that this piece was designed early in the first half of the XVII . The sculptures of acanthus leaves facades of three drawers also attest and decor eagle feather off the cross high and amounts, closer to a deep etching as a sculpture.
