The design of this console table relates to examples executed by Giovan Battista Foggini in the late 17th and early 18th century, particularly to those made after designs by Diacinto Maria Marmi. Two related drawings by Marmi for designs of supports for consoles incorporating female busts and volutes are in the Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe degli Uffizi in Florence, (A. González Palacios, Il Tempio del Gusto, Milan, 1986, vol. II, p. 31, fig. 13)
A pair of very comparable console tables was in the collection of Baron Mayer de Rothschild (1818-1874) and illustrated in the Dining Room at Mentmore Towers, Buckinghamshire, sold at the Sotheby's sale, 18-27 May 1977, lot 882.
