Antique Furniture as this French Louis Philippe Center Table, topped with original "finger grooved" black marble and crafted in 19th century from exotic imported rich solid mahogany is getting more difficult to find. Louis Philippe ruled in unpretentious fashion, avoiding the pomp and lavish excesses of his predecessors and antique French furniture of that era reflects the austerity of the period. Abandoning the elaborate and carved elements of past French styles did not mean that French would depart from quality and superb craftsmanship in furniture, art or architecture. Louis Philippe period antique furniture is a true expression of the conflicts in the time when the regal authority was restored with restrained elegance.
