Giovanni Battista Galletti
The cabinet, with two lower drawers front, hinged door, rounded corners and upper "puller", rests on four top-shaped feet with gilt bronze applications. The mirrors of the rose and cedar wood backgrounds and the plant inlays in maple wood, also visible on the sides, are admirable. It was commissioned by Vittorio Amedeo III "for his own use", perhaps intended for the king's apartment on the second noble floor of the Royal Palace of Turin. On the back of the limelight, in fact, the inlaid figures of the sovereign, surmounted by the Savoy crown, appear in great display. He was moved to the Genoese residence between 1823 and 1830.
