The slate top is beautifully decorated with Oriental figures, birds and foliage and bordered with semi precious stone and marble. The base, which is later, is profusely carved and gilded. The table is probably Florentine in origin and dates from around 1720. 510mm high, 1250mm wide and 690mm deep.
Scagliola (from the Italian scaglia, meaning "chips"), is a technique for producing stucco columns, sculptures, and other architectural elements and furniture that resemble inlays in marble and semi-precious stones. The Scagliola technique came into fashion in 17th-century Tuscany as an effective substitute for costly marble inlays, the pietra dura works created for the Medici family in Florence.
