1680 Italian (Florence) Table cabinet at the Royal Collection, UK - From the curators' comments: "The pietra dura panels - nine on the front carved in medium and high relief with fruit, four on the sides and top, inlaid with birds and fruit - are characteristic of Florentine work of the last quarter of the seventeenth century and the cabinet itself, which is little more than a vehicle for the display of the panels, was probably constructed at about the same date.!
