Bargueno of Salamanca model, also called columns, with hinged front cover, decorated on the outside with metal plates cut and pierced, applied on a background of red cloth (frequent in this type). The lock shield is complex, and fixed and balusters typical of the time on the sides. The exterior decoration is completed, sides with handles arched central lentil and long cut hinges profile also very typical of this model. The heads of the nails are on the front take the form of scallops worked in relief, some new current in this kind of writing desks. It stands on one foot vintage type bridge, made of wood carved and ebonised. Keep an architectural structure with side pads and three feet on each side, the central column-shaped helical shaft and the other two in the form of turned column and fluted shafts combines sleek bodies. See you on the legs that support the crossbars thick Bargueno, topped by the classic bearded face masks carved in high relief, which are actually the tops of the brackets that support to cover Bargueno, once opened.

Salamanca This type of desktop is typically Spanish, and is characterized by the wealth of the interior shows, with a decoration based on columns, turned and gold, as we see here. As usual in this model is that the present sample drawers with fronts following different models, which are mixed as evidence this Bargueno. The exhibition is organized into three registers, as usual, although the central chapel that usually appears is replaced by different drawers. The lower register hosts a large central drawer and two smaller side. This own architectural columns desktop scheme is repeated in the upper register, but with variations in design. In the middle register the serlianas remain in the center drawer, while on the sides (the two ends with separate lock) auctions are curved or arched pediments lowered. Finally, the third record, narrower than the other two, is occupied by four drawers, in this case with a symmetrical geometric and simple, like the one we see on the side of the lower register drawer design. The drawer handles all take the form of scallops, with matching nail heads outside.

Thus, the reasons are multiplying, colors, materials and textures combine and decoration becomes more complex, elements that speak of a fully formed and Baroque.
