Home Page Photographs: Objects from the Elton M. Hyder, Jr., Collection.
Top image: Detail of a seventeenth-century Brittany cupboard, possibly a converted bed. The cupboard is covered with carving and inlay work in addition to hundreds of turned spindles in gallery, columnar, and rosette patterns.
Middle image: Carved and inlaid panel from an Italian cassone, or chest, in sixteenth-century style. The detail is an example of intarsia, in which small pieces of wood veneer are used to create an abstract form or architectural representation.
Bottom image: Detail in intarsia of a seventeenth-century Italian cassapanca. The cassapanca, a large settee, was developed from the cassone by the addition of a back and arms; its name derives from cassone and banca.
