Italian 19th Century Floral Marquetry Center Table



A fine centre table firmly attributable to the Falcini Brothers of Florence Of octagonal form, being constructed in ebony, with extensive and comprehensive inlays of fruitwood and mother-of–pearl pictorially depicting foliates, urns, flora, and birds; rising from quadripartite scrolled feet, dressed with paterae, which support the central platform of truncated pyramidical form, in turn flanked by four faux fluted columns having lotus capitols: the top having a central inlaid Grecian flower-filled urn, with eight radially laid reserves, containing further complex inlay work of great finesse. This centre table is an important example of the detailed naturalistic marquetry work executed by the Florentine brothers Luigi (1794-1861) and Angiolo Falcini (fl. 1836-69) in the second quarter of the 19th century. Renowned for their elegant designs, and superbly executed inlay work, which they displayed to great acclaim at the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition.
