Catalogue Note

This particular type of console table with pierced apron and delicately carved legs with strapwork in low relief and exaggerated deep scrolls on socles is a rare example of the production made in Liguria in the second quarter of the 18th century. Genoese furniture of the 18th century is particularly noteworthy for its creativity and fine tradition of carving and sculpture.

The present impressive example standing out for the richness and quality of the decorative carvings bears close similarities with one from the Palazzo Reale in Genoa, illustrated in A. González-Palacios, Il Mobile in Liguria, Genoa, 1996, p.117, no.140. Related examples were also sold Sotheby's London, 15 December 1999, lot 74 and Sotheby's London, 11 December 2002, lot 41.
