Real Laboratorio de Piedras Duras del Buen Retiro

The models that inspired this work and its pair (O510) are not easy to identify. They may be based on prints after 17th-century Dutch paintings, in this case works by artists who travelled in Italy, such as Nicolaes Berchem (1620-1683). This panel may date from the final years of the Real Laboratorio’s activity.

This hardstone panel was made in the Real Laboratorio del Buen Retiro, a manufactory founded by Charles III in Madrid in 1762. Employing specialists summoned from Naples, where the King had established a similar institution, it was active until 1808. This example seems to date from the last years of the Madrid manufactory’s activity.

This mosaic was made at the Royal Laboratory of Gemstones of the Buen Retiro. Made using a sophisticated technique of hardstone inlay, this tabletop is based on a painting by Gaspare Vanvitelli in the Museo del Prado (P-2463). It depicts a place particularly popular with 18th-century travellers; an impressive Roman tunnel near Naples, excavated from the rock and located next to the columbarium hou

Two men play skittles among Roman ruins in a setting that recalls Venetian view paintings or vedute. The scene is framed by a border with fruit, musical and scientific instruments, books and a tray with a towel and a silver jug. The base follows the Neapolitan style of the first half of the century. The pair to this table is in the Ajuda Palace in Lisbon.

This table`s exquisitely made top is based on a painting by Charles-Joseph Flipart (1721-1797) which is also in the Prado (P07824). The central scene depicts figures in a port, of which the two in the oriental style are based on works by Giambattista Tiepolo. The table was made by Italian craftsmen summoned to Madrid by Charles III to establish the Royal Hardstone Laboratory.

The tabletop, which bears its date of completion, is decorated with trompe l’oeil decorations organized like a messy table. A painting with two Oriental figures is surrounded by various books, a ruler, a box, a cane, various papers and a drawing, two pistols and a powder container, a belt and a dagger. The bronze foot was made by Giovanni Battista Ferroni after Neapolitan consoles from the first h

The decoration of the tabletop is a trompe l’oeil design of the "disordered table" type. The objects refer to the liberal arts, including paintings, of which two are anamorphic and one a silhouette portrait, a book by Pliny, another of pieces of music, a hurdy-gurdy, bellows and a stick. The bronze base follows Neapolitan tables of this type of the first half of the century.

A table with two images of paintings (a seascape and a landscape) on a background of touchstone or Belgian black marble. Various books, a checkerboard, a small cup and a bag have been haphazardly arranged around them. The representation of the images is directly based on famous compositions by French painter Joseph Vernet (1714-1789), whose work was much appreciated by Charles III and Charles IV.
