The Kedleston Scagliola Tables
probably Domenico Bartoli (fl.1761-1805)
One of a pair of scagliola table tops decorated with the Arms of Nathanial Curzon 1st Baron Scarsdale, probably by Domenico Bartoli (Italian 1761-1805) circa 1759. The coat of arms within a cartouche decorated with oak branches in fruit within a ribbon banded border, inverted at the corners and decorated with further trailing oak leaves, scallops and floral scrolls. Originally commissioned for Lord Scarsdale's dressing room in the Family Pavilion. The scagliola tops were probably supplied by Joseph Wilton, agent in 1759, from Bartoli's workshops in Italy.
