An exceptional Baroque tabernacle depicts four inlaid figures from the Old and New Testaments (along the upper part of St. Matthew and St. John) and on the sides with figural inlays with two oval-framed musicians. On the left and right side, ingenious slide-out book stands, drawers below them. Inside the tabernacle, there are four drawers with an elongated secret box. The lower door depicts Moses inlaid in a maple spice with framing finished with a fan-shaped Baroque decor. Original fire-gilded fittings. This unique furniture consists of the most representative pieces of its time, probably designed by the famous Baroque architect working in the Czech lands, Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer. Original state.
