19th Century French Louis XVI Walnut Marble Top Oval End Table is a stunning find, indeed!  Beautifully sculpted from fine French walnut in the neoclassic manner that has remained in vogue for thousands of years, it features a space-friendly oval design topped with luxuriously veined carefree marble.  The marble is supported by a finely carved apron all around the perimeter, festooned with egg & dart trim, acanthus rosettes on the plinth blocks, and a glorious acanthus plume centered on each of the long sides.  Under the plinths appear tapered, fluted and reeded legs carved with acanthus plumes and lotus blossoms, which are connected with an intriguingly designed stretcher which combines gracefully bowed lines with elaborate carved detail contrasting with a button finial at the center.  Truly an unusual and spectacular find!
Circa 1880s
