White-painted console tables in a neoclassical style, such as these ones, were typically produced in Naples. Many skilled carvers were active in Naples at the end of the 18th century, amongst them Gennaro di Fiore, who belonged to a dynasty of artisans active in Naples from the middle of the 18th century. Di Fiore had been in charge of the decoration of a studio in the Palazzo Doria d'Angri, which furnishings were dispersed in a sale on March 1, 1940. 

Although no definitive attribution can be made for this console table, the carved floral garlands on the frieze and legs is reminiscent of the work of di Fiore. A related Neapolitan console table was sold Christie’s Rome, 10 March 1992, lot 204. An example attributed to Gennaro di Fiore and in the Palazzo Reale, Caserta is illustrated in Gonzáles-Palacios, A. Civiltà del’ 700 a Napoli, 1734-1799, Catalogo della mostra, Firenze, 1980, vol. II, p.203. Unlike these examples, the present pair is not formed as a demi-lune, which makes them even more unusual. In this way, highly similar tables with the scrolling flowers and ribbons is illustrated in Valeriani, R. La Casa di Sandra Caraccioli, Rome, 2012, p.101 and another illustrated Colle, E. Il mobile Neoclassico in Italia, Milan, 2005, p.84.
