The present lot relates closely to other known examples of parcel-gilt and polychrome-decorated cassoni: one, by the Florentine ebenista Antonio Ponziani, with panels painted by Antonio Ungarelli, was shown at the Esposizione nazionale di Firenze in 1861. It was bought by Vittorio Emanuale II for the Palazzo Pitti, where it remains today in the Galleria d'Arte Moderna; another example, with very similar painted end panels, was purchased in Florence in 1876 and is in the collection at Knole, England (see S. Chiarugi, Botteghe di Mobilieri in Toscana, Florence, 1994, vol. I, pp. 383-6, 391, pl. 503-506).
