Enrico Colle, Il Mobile Rococo in Italia Arredi e Decorazioni d’Interni dal 1738 al 1775, Milan, 2003, pp. 148-151, no.32, for a similarly carved console table in Palazzo Corsini, Rome Accademia dei Lincei.
This elegant and sculpturally carved pair of console tables decorated with flowers, leaves and racaille, x-form stretcher and veneered siena marble top are typical of Roman console tables of this period, several similar examples of which are illustrated by A.G.P.,op.cit.,p.175-178. This table bears strong similarities to several rococo console tables illustrated by Colle, op.cit.,pp.148-10, especially no. 32, including those in the Academia dei Lincei in the Palazzo Corsini, Rome. They were all made for the Corsini family by the intagliatore Nicola Carletti active circa 1768 and 1769, a name that is associated with this type of elaborately carved console table for the Roman aristocratic Palazzos. Other similar tables can be found in Palazzo Pallavinci Rospigliosi and Palazzo Doria Pamphili and in the Odescalchi collection.
