This settee is identical to the one presented at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris. Quarti showed a complete salotto in the Italian Section on the Esplanade des Invalides and was awarded a Grand Prix. The same salotto was presumably shown at the 1902 International Exhibition in Turin.
The settee shown in Paris and Turin is now in the collection of the Fondazione Chiara e Francesco Carraro in Venice.
