This splendid walnut wood table produced in Lombardy at the end of the 16th century has a dark patina, very characteristic of late Renaissance cabinet-making in this region.
Its top, made in one piece, is supported by a lyre base, while the spacer receives in its centre the situation of two carefully studied and sculpted support elements. These elements make our table special, because they are usually turned in the opposite direction, as shown by numerous comparisons in Giacomo Wannenes, Mobili d'Italia, published in 1988 (pp. 147, 148, 151). In addition, the study of these other Lombard tables showed that our piece also stood out for its dimensions. Indeed, most of the tables of this type are large formats, while ours seems to have been made for private use, perhaps for study.
