Catalogue Note

This fine pair of stools appears to be an evolution of the best Roman late baroque from the second half of the 17th century, where finely carved acanthus scrolls coexist with sculptural c- and s-scrolls such as found on a console table at Palazzo Spada, Rome. Sources for such tables are found in Filippo Passarini's Nuove inventioni d'ornamenti, Rome, 1698. Here, however, the foliage is already more stylized, the carving already remindful of a group of console tables at Palazzo Corsini, Rome.
