1st. Hardcover. Fine, Fine. 

The magnificent country houses built in Britain between 1890 and 1939 were the last monuments to a vanishing age.

Those that survive, however, provide tangible evidence of the life and death of an extraordinarily prosperous age. With 244 black and white illustrations and 37 color plates.

17 Caterina, Lucia and Cristina MossettiVilla Della Regina: Il Riflesso dell'Oriente nel Piedmonte del Settecento
Torino: Umberto Allemandi, 2005

1st. Hardcover. New, New. 
with shipping box.

This volume was published on the occasion of the restoration of one of the most attractive residences of the Savoy court, the Villa della Regina in Turin. Divided into five sections, this book collects research on oriental furnishings and their imitation in Piedmont: iconography and techniques "from China" are studied in comparison with the great European and decorative repertoires in relation to the taste for exoticism widespread in the eighteenth century. The result of long research by scholars from different disciplines, the book reconstructs missing furnishings (paper, textiles, panels and screens in lacquer, and porcelain cabinets, manufactured in the orient and Europe). Profusely illustrated. Text in Italian.
