Louis XV Console Table

France Circa 1790

D: 43″W x 17.5″D x 33″H

SKU: 758 Category: Tags: , ,

Beautifully carved, gilded and painted wood console table with a gorgeous marble top. It shows curved lined and sinuous movement with great wood carving of stylized dore foliages, rinceaux and coquilles. Chantourne and moulure Breccia marble top in “Breche Medous Jaune” from the Hautes Pyrenees (France-no longer quarried) 1.1/4″ -(3.2cm)-thick! At the time of construction, the back feet disappeared, as these consoles were more a wall panelling decor than a piece of furniture.

Also to be noted, there is never a Maker’s mark on the Consoles as they were the result of a team’s work (Architect, Decorator, Gilder etc.).
