Description

The Consoles, offering a support surface without cluttering the halls, intended for receptions and balls, were very popular furniture in the seventeenth century. This Genoese specimen, richly decorated with a putto sitting on a rock spur, depicted in the act of hiding from a lion, has a whimsical design, which finds comparison with the architectural and scenographic taste of contemporary Genoese palaces. The insertion of the lion has led to the hypothesis of a connection of the piece with the Genoese Brignole Sale family, who renovated the palace and furnishings in the seventeenth century with great effort.
