Unique Italian Empire Console with Matching Mirror Circa 1830

Item Number: 6658

This beautiful Italian Empire set is comprised of a matching mirror and console and was created in the early 19th century circa 1830. The piece is detailed in hand carvings. The gold leaf gild work contrasts quite well against the painted brick red background. The piece is adorned with Egyptian influences and style; note the sphinxes, crown, and acanthus leaves for example. The torch legs are unique in their shape, as is the gorgeous column work which frames the mirror. Faux marble is painted at the base to match the original marble top of the console, furthering the sense of balance in the pair.
