Gueridon table - Attributed to Alexandre Maigret

Circa 1810, Attributed To Alexandre Maigret, After A Design By Charles Percier And Francois Leonard Fontaine

The circular Maurin green marble top above a frieze with rosettes flanked by scrolled acanthus leaves and palmettes, on a baluster shaft headed by a shaped palmette, laurel and berry star, flowerhead, and leaftip-decorated collar with stippled ground beneath a dark green patinated molded ring, the baluster and domed central area of the base profusely decorated with large stylized leaves, flowerheads and leaftip torus knop, on a stepped inswept square base on circular sabots and castors, the ogee corners of the upper step with stylized leaf-tip decoration, with a crowned paper label with the inventory number 'A.1031'
31 1/2 in. (80 cm.) high; 37 3/4 in. (96 cm.) diameter
The attribution of this guéridon to Alexandre Maigret is based on the example with the same mounts stamped by this ébéniste and sold anonymously, Cornette de St Cyr, Paris, 18 January 1988, lot 132.
Maigret is first mentioned in the late 1770s' and became successful in the Empire period. He was appointed fournisseur to the Garde-Meuble Impérial in 1805 and worked for most of the Imperial residences, including the Palais de Fontainebleau and de Saint-Cloud, for the Petit Trianon and for the Palais des Tuileries.
Established in the fashionable rue Vivienne, he worked as a cabinet-maker and as an upholsterer. His style relates to the oeuvre of his fellow cabinet-makers Jacob-Desmalter and Marcion.
He collaborated with the bronziers Feuchères and Fossey; the present lot highlights the very best quality of ormolu that Maigret used to embellish his furniture. Its mounts are inspired by the models published by the architects, interior designers and ornemanistes Charles Percier and Pierre-François-Léonard Fontaine.
