Synopsis

A fundamental reference workThis book is the “museum” of Piedmontese furniture from the mid-17th century to the end of the 18th century, the apogee of Italian cabinet-making. More than one thousand colour images enable a close-up view each piece and its details. Baroque, Neo-classical, and 19th-century Piedmontese furniture is highly prized by scholars, museums and collectors. The first volume is dedicated to the best known cabinet-makers, starting with Piffetti, and the second features works with uncertain attribution but of notable quality. The furniture is presented by category: corner cupboards, wardrobes, chests of drawers, sideboards, kneeling stools, beds, bookcases, desks, chairs, mirrors, console tables, dining tables, and tea tables, as well as accessory pieces, including fire screens, pedestals, and jewellery cases.
