Venetian style lacquered gold leaf kitchen
Gold Leaf, Solid Wood, Ash, Linden
The “Dogana da Mar” (sea customs-house) is to be found in Venice where the Grand Canal and the Giudecca canal meet. On the spot where there was once a battlemented tower, there is now a building on top of which are two kneeling “atlases” supporting a golden ball topped by the “Statue of Fortune”. This building was erected in the 15th century to control the ships that berthed in Venice.
Still today the beauty of the buildings in the Grand Canal that look towards the statue inspires refined stylistic details full of history and culture.
