Catalogue Note

This table may have been acquired by the The First Duke of Palmela, Don Pedro de Sousa-Holstein (1781-1850, created Count of Palmela in 1812, Marquis of Palmela in 1823, and Duke in 1850).  He was an important statesman who served as Portuguese ambassador to the Congress of Vienna in 1814 and Prime Minister from 1834-35, and during the years between these posts he resided in Brazil and London, both as ambassador and in exile.  His descendants enriched the family collections housed at the Palmela residences in Lisbon and the Casa de Calhariz in Sesimbra.
