Speluzzi - inv. 1104
The tabletop has a refined inlaid pattern of semi-precious stones representing coral, shells and pearls. It is a typical example of the work of the famous Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence, which began to decorate objects with shells and marine motifs as early as the mid-eighteenth century. This top was probably made to a design by Carlo Carlieri, active between 1781 and 1822. The support, made of ebony with heavy chiselled and gilt bronze decorations, is by Giuseppe Speluzzi.
