Combining straight, tailored architecture with perfectly blended demilune curves, this majestic Louis XVI console has been carved to perfection with ribbon, floral garlands, spiral ribbon and Greek coin overlay to name a few of the motifs, then it was given a painted finish that has achieved a wonderful patina over the ensuing decades. An arched, beveled mirror atop the luxuriously veined marble top leads the eye down to the console fully supported by four tapered, fluted & carved legs connected with stretchers that are centered with a stunning urn finial bursting with flowers. What a way to greet your guests and family!
Circa 1890s.
