A Highly Rare 18th Century  Venetian Rococo Chinoiserie Polychrome Cassettone Piccolo (Lowboy), a masterful example of Venetian Chinoiserie at its exuberant best, the top featuring three vibrant figures under a smiling moon, above a rarely seen singular drawer, featuring the keyhole (and original key) set whimsically off-center to fit into the hand of an exotic “Chinese” dervish seated under a parasol and reflecting the playfulness of the finest Venetian 18th century custom commissioned furnishings, the whole with a shaped rocaille apron and raised on cabriole legs
