Lot Essay

The delicate scrolling foliage, birds and fruit in this table top worked in specimen marbles and mother-of-pearl reflects the work seen in panels from Naples. Its artistic use of inlay, incorporating a large variety of marble and hardstones along with the striking addition of mother of pearl, reflects the influence of the Neapolitan sculptor and architect Cosimo Fanzago (1591-1678) or one of his disciples.
