Footnotes

  • Angela Caròla-Perrotti writes (Ritorno al Barocco (2010), p.320) that to accompany the Servizio delle Vedute Napolitane , from 1792 a very elaborate table setting was designed by Tagliolini and Venuti. They created a kind of miniature park, called the Real Passagio, which included figures from the Neapolitan bourgeoisie and, according to one document, seventy-five figures dressed in the fashions of the day and described in the factory as bernesche because of the gently satirical way in which they were portrayed. The model for this figure would have originally been made for this service, and it became one of the most popular lines of production for the factory in the late 18th century.
