Just received a Spanish book from my sister and in the title it has El Bargueno (the "n" has the tilde) - neither of my dictionaries or website translators can help me. Any native speakers able to help? The picture on the book appears to be a chest of some kind but don't know if that's relative to the title.

Bargas is a city in Spain, “Bargueño” is the people native to Bargas. And one type of chest of drawers traditional from Bargas is called “Bargueño” . I think the name of the book is about this kind of chest. (i’m sorry about my english, I am spanish speaker)

Thanks - my assumption about the picture on the book and the word meaning a chest was correct - appreciate your help.

The default Spanish dictionary (but not the best) is Royal Spanish Academy Dictionary (DRAE). I didn't know the word, but DRAE says it is a type of chest, with many boxes and decorated with carvings an other stuff. Its name come from Bargas, a city in Spain, then it is a "Bargasian" http://dle.rae.es/?id=556cY24

I’m sorry, the DRAE is THE diccionary in spanish language. Maybe many people don’t like it , but it is “the law” in spanish...
