Guéridon Table attributed to Gabriel Viardot for la Maison des Bambous. l

Late 19th century Guéridon Table attributed to Gabriel Viardot for la Maison des Bambous.
This exceptional carved walnut table is a fine example of Japonism in France at the end of the 19th century. The top is decorated with Japanese cloisonne plaques with a goldstone ground ( aventurine). The 6 fan shape plaques are decorated with birds and flowers. The Central round one represents two dragons. These cloisonné plaques are a fine example of the mastery of this technique at the time of Meiji. Even if it is not signed, both the style of this piece and the use of elements from the Far East allow an attribution to Gabriel Viardot.

Height: 81 cm. Diameter: 84 cm.

France and Japan, circa 1885-1900.

Gabriel Viardot adapted many East Asian decorative elements for his furniture designs and became famous for making pieces in the Chinese and Japanese styles. His ideas were fuelled by French colonial and trading links with the Far East and a strong demand in France for exotic luxury goods from Asia. His pieces, although eastern in overall style, were recognisably European in origin.. In 1889 he won a gold medal for his furniture at the Paris International Exhibition, following the award of a silver medal in 1878 and four medals in 1867.
