Traditional Madia chest

The artefact

This particular and practical container-table, with the two top half table tops that can be opened, draws on the traditional Sardinian sideboards, used whilst baking bread or cakes, and is decorated in this version with the distinctive shape of the two stylised lapwings, enriched with soberly brush-painted details in green. Handcrafted with remarkable artisanal skill, it is a characteristic functional piece of furniture suitable for various rooms and it can be customised in decoration and size.
