Black Tie Swan
Two swans transport us to the mythological world of Leda, Zeus’ beloved. The richness of the decorations and the black trim alludes to the notes of Act III of Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet and the elegance of the costumes.
This cabinet from the 1940s is inspired by the world of music and fashion, vaunting original Bakelite handles and carved wooden legs which have been restored to their natural state.
Decorated with beads, stones and black rhinestones. Top hand-painted in a damask design. The interior lights up with yellow. Jewel chains serve as doorstops. The lavish decoration contrasts with the simplicity of the legs in unfinished wood, enhancing the mastery of the carved swans.
