Hübscher neoklassizistischer Beistelltisch in der Art G. Maggiolinis, Italien, Ende 19. Jh.
An unusual 19th century marquetry side table of freestanding form, with a quarter veneered top and shelf, the central drawer inlaid with stylized acanthus leaves, the corner panels with a similar foliate marquetry and paterae, the back decorated conformingly. The sides are centered by a medallion depicting a male figure with an eagle. The marquetry design based on the work of Giuseppe Maggiolini (1738-1814), one of the most renowned Italian cabinetmakers of the 18th and early 19th century. Particularly famed is his work in marquetry, on commodes, chests, writing desks and tables. Neoclassical in design, his pieces employ a variety of richly-colored woods, geometric shapes and intricate patterns.
