Additional Information

Notes historical bibliographic:
The mobile presents a strong close with the production of the bottega Beetles to the point of being able to say that it is a realization of a student of the master came out of the shop. The construction of the mobile and the cutting of the struts, a detail that characterizes the architecture of the mobile give the idea that the cabinet maker should have learned certain techniques and also the drawings of the inlays are so similar, albeit simplified to those present in the Workshop of Maggiolini not lascir doubts on the formation of the cabinet maker. Are the reduced palette of woods available and some imperfection in the realization of the inlays to make us understand that cannot be an works the exit from the workshop of the master. The reference drawings are still there and are for the rosettes

Neoclassical (1765-1790):
Questo periodo storico comprende una prima fase propriamente definibile di Stile Luigi XVI. Solo in un secondo momento, con il maturare delle mode archeologiche, si formula e si codifica una nuova visione della civiltà d'arredo, ora compiutamente ascrivibile allo Stile Neoclassico. Nei fatti, entrambe le tendenze convivono all'unisono fino agli ultimi anni del Settecento. A pieno titolo, in ambito di ebanisteria, rientrano nell'epoca neoclassica anche gli stili Direttorio, Retour d'Egypte, Consolare e Impero.
