G. Morazzoni, Il mobile veneziano del Settecento , Vol. II, Milan, 1958
C. Santini, Mille mobili veneti, Modena, 2002, p. 47, no. 48-49, for a related corner cupboard, in ivory and gold lacquer, with two, instead of a single door.
For their exaggerated bombé form and the exuberance of the carving, the present pair represents the quintessence of the rococo style in Venice.
A related pair of corner cupboards sold these rooms, 8 July 2008, lot 161 (£85,250). G. Morazzoni, op. cit, tav. CCCXXXII, illustrates a single carved giltwood corner cupboard, formerly in the collection of Palazzo Giovanelli, Venice, which was sold in these rooms from the Giuseppe Rossi collection, vol. I, 10 March 1999, lot 92.
