Italian term or phrase: riserve incave
I'm translating an inventory of works of art and antique furniture in a stately home. In the description of the items of furniture (desks, bureax, tables etc.) the term "a riserve incave" reoccurs often, always in association with "intagliato" or "scolpito". Here are some examples:
- Cornice in legno dorato intagliata a riserve incave con motivi floreali
- Cornice scolpito a riserve incave con rilievi vegetali
Any ideas what this means and how I could translate it? Thanks, Sarah.
