Tabletop

Ca. 1570. Alabaster, Coral, Marble, Hardstone. Not on display

This is considered to be the earliest tabletop of this kind in Spain to judge from the materials used and the similarity of the decoration to other such tabletops in Florence (Museo degli Argenti). The geometrical decoration recalls Roman work of this period, although the relationship with drawings by the Florentine architect G.A. Dosio and others by Niccoló Gaddi may also suggest a Florentine origin.
