Exquisite wooden circular table adorned with a very delicate marquetry work and mother of pearl and tortoiseshell inlays portraying a fantastic motif made up of naturalist motifs and geometric trims. It has a round tabletop and a central axis supported by an hexagonal base on bulb feet legs. This exquisite piece of furniture is a clear sign of the Oriental influence upon this period, which is easily accepted by the society in the Americas. Orientalism, latent in the bottom of the Hispanic soul, has an exuberant awakening in American lands.
The nacre inlays are an Oriental decoration, specifically from the Philippines, which arrived in the Americas on the Manila Galleon trading ship, in 1565, when the Spaniards occupied the Philippines, and therefore could have a route communicating Asia with Mexico, and indirectly with Lima, through the Pacific Ocean. The Philippines-Acapulco route was made by the Manila Galleon, and the Mexico-Callao route was made by the Acapulco Galleon.
Of various types and usages, there were large closets with high roof combs or crests, tables, sofas, armchairs, comfortable cabinets, crosses, frames or boxes.
