Napoleon III Gueridon in Wood and Lacquered Cardboard

Small gueridon in wood and lacquered cardboard. The tabletop's scalloped border and round base are decorated with gilded foliage and scrollwork, while painted flowers inlaid with mother-of-pearl embellish the center of the table. A balustrade-shaped shaft connects to the top with a hinge that can open to tilt the tabletop vertically. Napoleon III period. Good condition.


During the 1850's and 1860's, black was the color of luxury, recalling the ebony and lacquers of the Far East. The bourgeoisie bought furniture and objects in paper maché (in part composed of boiled cardboard) that had been lacquered and inlaid with mother-of-pearl. These techniques gave striking contrast and elegance to objects whose production was relatively inexpensive.
