Location: Dallas


19th Century French Fruitwood Louis End Table is a splendid example of the genre, with contoured and beveled top supported by a scrolled and exquisitely sculpted apron, all supported by four graceful cabriole legs each of which has been adorned with lavish hand-carved foliate motifs in full relief, then tipped with acanthus plume atop escargot feet.  The rich patina of the fruitwood exhibits highly decorative grain patterns which the sculptors took into consideration when they so artfully carved the stylized naturalistic motifs into the wood frame and legs themselves in the timeless Rococo manner.
Circa 1880s
