Showcase - a modern relative of the buffet. Behind her glass doors are hidden items that are dear to my heart — Chinese porcelain, Bohemian crystal, collections of coins, or antique figurines.

Narrow or wide, made of wood or metal, with one or several doors, the showcase is a mandatory attribute of the living room, created to attract attention and demonstrate the status of the owners. Its most important element is glass. It can be rectangular with a special facet or convex, repeating all the bends of the door. Opaque parts of the showcase are decorated with carvings, light forging, leather inserts, artistic painting, gilding and original fittings.
