Info: It’s very likely that this elaborately carved sled was driven by a youngster (male or female) during the carneval season, the length of the vessel indicates a younger person.
The quality of the carving with the detachable triton blowing his horn tells of the wealth of the family.
We imagine a possible use of this piece of art in a champagne bar, a green house, or a spa area – the sled was lined with copper at a later stage!
Image 1: this is how we looked at the fair in Torino, Italy, autumn 2020. We carry unusual piecesa like the big Spanish tapestry at the back of the wall, the red pomegranate Khotan on the left hand wall or the large ivory ground Ghazwin carpet on the floor. Image 2: this is how we looked before,in 2019, also in Torino. There is a rare German Bauhaus rug on the back wall amongst textiles. Image 3: the rug on the wall, a rare Ladik of the 18.century.
