The strongly architectural and compartmented structure of this cassone was popular in Central Italy in the late 16th early 17th Century. A similar cassone with a central eliptical field inserted in a sequence of three rectangular panels is illustrated in F. Schottmüller ed., Wohnungskultur und Möbel der Italienischen Renaissance, Stuttgart, 1921, pl. 114. An example with similar double downscrolled feet from the Julius Bohler collection, Munich, is illustrated in Schottmüller, op.cit., pl. 133.
