“Museu de Lisboa - Palácio Pimenta exhibits a rich and interesting collection of pieces with carved leather: chairs from the early 17th century to the mid-18th century, a chest and a canopy bed-chair. The variety and quality are more than enough reasons to study and decode them in terms of styles, techniques, tools, history and meanings. We used the few written materials related to the mechanical crafts of Lisbon and wanted to bring to light other elements that placed the work of the corrieyro dobra grosa among the other artisans of the time." (from the book's introduction).
