Detail Description

Above a pierced frieze with garlands, rocailles, C- and S-scrolls, on carved elongated leaves monopods terminating in scroll feet. Positively rare in their original shape and design, this pair of console tables were almost certainly once part of a larger suite of furniture, certainly for a holiday villa (luogo di delizie or sanssouci) on the coast outside Genoa, such as Villa Della Rovere (today Gavotti) in Albissola Marina.
