ROME, SECOND HALF OF THE 18 TH CENTURY
cm 120 x 58 x 98h
A rectangular top, in antique yellow marble and ormolu profile, rests on a high frieze centred by a flower and a tied up ribbon from which garlands depart and elegantly go all round the surface. Four double curved sinuous legs, carved with leafage, decorated with rich carved festoons and ending in caprino feet, are joined by a cross vault centred with a beautiful basket, carved all round, filled with fruit and flowers. This table of beautiful and elegant proportions, minutely finished in its intaglios and in its gilding, is very similar to a specimen found in the Palazzo Comunale di Fermo, pubblished by Enrico Colle in” Il mobile rococò in Italia”, page 154.
