A Fine Table Cabinet By Giovanni Battista Gatti
The ivory inlay being laid down on an ebony ground, the front having four drawers and two doors having thuya veneer on the interior revealing eight drawers within, each with marquetry fronts; all with ivory turned handles. The whole intricately decorated with scrolling foliage of rinceaux form interspersed with grotesques, birds, fountains, flowers and winged putti. The frieze drawers flanking a central cat's mask indicative of the artist. Bearing a paper label to the back depicting an unknown man, presumably Gatti himself. Stamped twice to the bottom drawer fronts 'G.B. Gatti.'
Italian, Circa 1870
