This table is attributed to Gaetano Descalzi known as Il Campanino from Chiavari. He was known for using local species of wood in particular a variety of olive and palm wood found only in Liguria, such as the one presented here. A table in the similar manner was bought from the workshop in Chiavari by Carlo Alberto and Maria Teresa of Savoy King and Queen of Sardinia (and parents of Vittorio Emanuele, the first King of Italy) during their visit in 1838, and is now in the Royal Palace of Turin.
