Light-blue traditional chest

The artefact

This capacious decorative chest that reproduces the lines of the traditional Sardinian chest is solidly manufactured and hand-decorated with carved motifs. Coated with semi-transparent light-blue paint that shows the fine wood grain, it is enriched with subtle gold and white brush painting. Entirely handcrafted, it is a typical artefact of this carpenter’s shop which is available in various sizes, wood variants, natural colours or light pastel tones.
