French 19th Century Transition Period Hand-Carved Giltwood Console with Marble Top

Item Number: 6932

This incredible Transition Period console table is in excellent condition for its 18th century origins.

As we transition from the top of the piece to the base, the legs transition from the Louis XV curvature to the straightness found in Louis XVI. The piece is made of hand-carved wood and features hoofed feet, a beautiful urn connecting the legs at the base, acanthus leaves, a greek key motif on the apron, and draped hand-carved ribbons. The console is covered in hand-painted gold leaf and the contoured marble is original to the piece.
