The showcase is an exceptional example of the superb cabinetmaking skills of the company Portois & Fix company, which was based in Vienna and Paris. In my opinion, this piece was conceived for the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900, where it could easily stand any comparison with the most exalted works of the most important French designers and furniture producers. Due to its exquisite execution this showcase only weighs 30 kilos.
