there are trumeau and trumeau


Explanation:
depending on the style of furniture involved. I have done a research on the net looking for antique trumeaus and there are
small cupboards
consol (pier glass with table)
secretaires

rovere is definitely oak. You could do a search with Google and find a trumeau from the same age of yours.
