Walnut cylinder desk with bone inlaid with geometrical motifs on all four sides, inspired by the orient: the certosina is a decorative art technique used widely in the Italian Renaissance period.
The Venetians brought back the star, arabesque and flower patterns they saw during their journeys to the east. This art came back to life in the Milanese workshops of Pogliani and Brambilla, among others, during the second half of the 19th century, but our desk seems to be Venetian, and is still very much in use today.
