This piece of furniture is a beautiful example of design by the famous architect Pelagio Palagi, author of furniture and interiors for various palaces of the royal family (an example is the Etruscan Cabinet of the Racconigi castle). The design of the psyche is actually very similar to the works of Pelagi, with a decoration similar to the grotesques of the Domus Aurea interpreted in Charles X according to the taste of the architect. The woods used are very precious and the inlay is clean and executed with precision.The elegance of the furniture and the style of execution is in line with the works carried out by Gabriele Capello known as Moncalvo, cabinetmaker of great importance in the artistic field real and who collaborated numerous times with Pelagio Pelagi. In fact, there are many examples of collaboration between the two; Pelagio Pelagi drew while Moncalvo executed and interpreted them. (An example of their collaboration is the Etruscan Cabinet in Racconigi). The double swan-shaped rose window is typical of Moncalvo's works, often repeated on sofas, armchairs and chairs.
