Art Nouveau Period French Marquetry End Table is a masterwork of the furniture maker's art.  Octagonal top is exquisitely inlaid with ebony, satinwood and mahogany to create a cameo-style profile of a beautiful maiden.  The detailing around the portrait silhouette is astonishing, but the artisans then created an olivewood framework around that following the contours of the eight-sided beveled top with fruit and foliate motifs.  Four artfully turned legs provide support, and are reinforced by a square shelf below that has been also lavished with marquetry detailing for a stunning two-tiered effect.
Amazing craftsmanship and artistry, with a wonderful functionality in the bargain!
Circa 1895-1905
