The mark CFM is believed to be for the Garde-Meuble Ferdinando of King Ferdinand II of Spain (1813-1833). The mark appears on some Crown property which dates from his reign, and also appeared on a pair of marquises formerly in the inventory of Ariane Dandois and exhibited at the 1998 Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris.
The linear design of the sofas and the carvings shows close similarities with some seat furniture documented in the Royal Palace of Milan (see G. Morazzoni, Il Mobile Neoclassico, Milano, pls. CCC-CCCVIII and C. Alberici, Il Mobile Lombardo, Milano, 1969, pp. 215 and 128.
