Our opinion :

This type of console appeared in the 1750s, tired of the unbridled exuberance and considered too baroque Rococo style, a return to simplicity is asked the decorators by extremely refined customers.
Encouraged by the recent discovery of Pompeii, the "antique fashion" lives its first fruits, the first stage will be "the rocky assagit" with a return to symmetrical forms but still decorated with floral decorations.
The architect Pierre Contant d'Ivry (1698-1777) will push this fashion to its maximum around 1765 offering tables in console square shape decorated with Greek architecture very much announcing the Louis XVI style.
However our console with its important rearward offset that makes the sides visible from the front and its spacers bouquet of flowers, is typical of the drawings of the architect of the Royal Academy Pierre Noël Rousset. (Photo)
This last one worked for the elite of the Parisian nobility notably with the castles of Raincy, with the hotel of Tessé or with the Sainte Chapelle.
Our console developing more than 240 cm of carved decoration is an extremely rare ceremonial piece on the market.
Our research unfortunately did not allow us to identify the important building for which it was delivered.
