Location: Dallas


19th Century French Walnut 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 escargot feet.  The sumptuous walnut exhibits highly decorative grain patterns indicating an exceptionally high quality, a fact that 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
