Object Literature

There were a number of marble workshops on the island of Malta, initially founded in the seventeenth century by Italian craftsmen and under the patronage of the Knight Hospitallers of St John. Under British rule from 1800, the workshops began making marble table tops in the Italian style for British visitors similar to those sought by the original Grand Tourists in Italy. J. Darmanin and Sons were the best-known marble-working firm in nineteenth century Malta. They traded c.1800 to the 1880s and exhibited at several international exhibitions including the Great Exhibition in London in 1851.
