Gallori Turchi Antichità was founded by Giorgio Turchi in 1942; he was a man of great taste and a strong artistic sensibility. The passion for art was handed down from father to son, as Bruno followed in the footsteps of his father Giorgio; with love and dedication, Bruno enlarged the business with international trade relations and partnerships. The same passion is followed by the new generation, as Gherardo, the son of Bruno, has joined forces at the gallery. He shows the same enthusiasm for antiques and ancient weapons as his grandfather and father, among the most important symbols of this historic company, which also boasts a fine selection of majolicas, antique paintings and furniture possessing a high antiquarian profile. The gallery works together with some of the most important international museums, European private associations and Italian as well as international Fashion houses.

According to Alvar Gonzàlez-Palacios, the console table we’re going to analyse was carried out in Florence between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Diacinto Maria Marmi (1625 - 1702) and Giovan Battista Foggini (1625 – 1725) were the most renowned Italian interior designers at that time. Both working at Medici’s court, the first was one of its main officers, the second was appointed leading architect as well as Grand Duchy’s workshop supervisor.
