The present trespolo is inspired by the work of one of Venice’s most renowned sculptors, Antonio Corradini. Having worked in Germany, Austria and Bohemia, his work is permeated with foreign influences. The organic nature such as the sculpted acanthus leaves to the base of the trespolo and the figure of Pan are influenced by Corradini. A closely related example is at Ca' Rezzonico, Venice, and sculpted with similar trails of grapes (see Giovanni Mariacher, Ca' Rezzonico, An Illustrated Guide, Venice, 1967, fig. 72 and Giovanni Mariacher, Il Mobile Barocco Veneziano, Novarra, p.23). For further relating trespoli see also Saul Levy, Il Mobile Veneziano del Settecento, Milan, figs. 285.
