Catalogue Note

the strapwork intarsia on an ebony ground found on the doors of this credenza closely relates to a typically Florentine intarsia which finds perhaps its best example in the Sacrestia of the Church of Santa Croce, Florence, dating from the mid-15th century (illustrated in M. Tinti, op. cit., fig. XXIV, reproduced here in fig. 1) and in the Convento di San Francesco, Fiesole, said by Tinti to be "in the style of Giuliano da Maiano" (op. cit., fig. XXXVII).
