Giltwood Console Table with Rounded Sides

Louis XVI Period
Height 33.8 inches ; Length 60.2 inches ; Depth 23.6 inches

This is a very beautiful console table with rounded sides and carved giltwood from the Louis XVI period.
This period is known for its return to symmetry and its ornamentation from antiquity.
Our console table is of a large size with is not the norm. It also distinguishes itself by the balance of its proportions and the quality of the woodwork.

The ornamentation is both deep and neat.
The apron is carved with rudent and heart ornamentation, and pearl friezes. The four tapered legs are finely crafted; they are carved with deep rudent grooves, have asperges ornamentation, are surmounted with pearls in a ring-like formation, and their base is wrapped with acanthus leaves. The X-shaped spacer unites the four legs and are elegantly curved and carved with piasters. In the center there is a vase with Greek handles which have pine cone garlands coming from them.

The console table is topped with a white marble that is slightly veiny and cavet rounded sides. The four rounded feet bring rhythm to the console table. The gilding is original, and the parts that have been restored are minor.

The remarkable balance of the proportions, the fineness of the craftsmanship, and the richness of the ornamentations, make this console table an exceptional piece that can be attributed to Georges Jacob (1739-1814). It can be compared to a console table signed by Georges Jacob, and sold on May 12, 1967, Sotheby’s New York, lot 211.
