Italian term or phrase: lastronato in radica di noce
Describes the drawers on a chest of drawers.
Traci A.
English translation:walnut veneer
Explanation:
radica di noce is the "heart" of the walnut tree and presumably the choicest part.
I suspect that lastronato comes from "lastra" - a strip or layer and of course a veneer is just that, a slim layer of precious material added to a surface to improve its appearance
