Good condition, with minor signs of wear
Closet with a mirrored door and two drawers, veneered in crotch mahogany, threaded and inlaid with maple wood. The structure recalls the pediment of a classical temple. The decorative motifs of the inlays, rendered in an elegant calligraphic style, represent figures of warriors, plant spirals and naturalistic theme.

This one refers to the historical period between 1820-1830.

Neapolitan Smith piece of furniture
Some scholars suggested that the Neapolitan ‘Smith’ furniture was inspired by George Smith's drawings, a cabinetmaker who worked in London between 1804 and 1828 and who published, in 1808, the album of engravings: ‘A Collection of Designs for Household Furniture’. But the calligraphic inlay that characterises the Neapolitan cabinetmaking doesn't find widespread evidence in the English Regency production, while it corresponds almost perfectly to what was produced in Spain during the age of Isabella II. Recently, however, some historians have suggested that this cabinet-making was the work of a certain Girolamo Schmidt, of German origin but working in Naples, who would have made similar furniture for the Ruffo della Scaletta building in 1838 and the mahogany furnishings of the Gabinetto di Scienze Fisiche di Ferdinando II in Palazzo Reale in 1841.
Source: Girolamo Schmidt was quoted by Chiara Garzya in her 1978 book ‘Interni neoclassici a Napoli’ and by Enrico Colle in his book ‘Il mobile dell'Ottocento in Italia’, 2007.
