Valentino Panciera Besarel (1829 - 1902) established himself in the 1860's in Venice where he opened an atelier and shop. He soon distinguished himself as a creator of exquisite sculpture and furniture for wealthy private patrons and the royal courts.

The strong sculptural theme of his furniture was directly influenced by the work of the seventeenth-century master Andrea Brustolon (1662 - 1732) to whose work he had been frequently exposed to in Venice.

Besarel is noted as having exhibited at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle.
