Catalogue Note

Although the stamp on the present table is as yet unrecorded in scholarly publications about inlaid pietra dura, the floral composition of the table top relates to floral composition in pietra dura produced in Florence during the second half of the 19th century. The table could have been made by a number of Florentine workshops located between Lungarno Vespucci and Borgo ogni Santi.  These workshops took inspiration from the models produced at the Opificio.  Artisans who had previously worked at the Opificio left to set up their own independent workshops in Florence.  For example, Gaetano Bianchini, left in 1825 set up his own workshop which remained active throughout the 19th century.

A very closely related Florentine table top set on an Angiolo Barbetti's carved ebony base sold Sotheby's, London, September 27, 1991, lot 21 (£74,800).
