PAIR OF DEMI-LUNE TABLES
Wood with mahogany veneer; top in scagliola.
Pair of demi-lune tables in mahogany with top in scagliola. The strip below the top features a central drawer which rests on two cabriole legs in front and on a pair of linear legs behind. The flat base with three concave sides is supported by flattened onion feet terminating in spherical elements.
These tables, which may be retraced to a Neapolitan context, vaunt scagliola tops decorated by panoplies of weapons and ensigns which differ slightly in the single tables, which are centred by coat of arms referring, by way of nostalgic homage, to the House of Anjou.
Naples, second quarter of the 19th century
