18th century, Italian Neoclassical Round Lacquered Wood Center Table with Marble Top
This elegant neoclassical table was made towards the end of the eighteenth century in central Italy.
It consists of a valuable marble top ("fior di pesco carnico rosato") of circular shape, resting on a wooden structure finely carved and lacquered in white and gold. The band is adorned with a frieze phytomorphic with vine leaves and small clusters of grapes. Above and below are two reserves with geometric and palmette motifs. The legs are four, a central hexagonal section and three distal circular section, all grooved. The legs rest on a convex granite trilobed base with raised from the ground edged in carved wood, lacquered, golden and grooved.
This table, which was created to be placed in the center of an environment, surrounded by chairs and also used as a dining table, can be thought, thanks to its small size, to be exposed in different environments, such as a study or a bedroom, or in a room next to the walls like a gueridon on which to expose frames, sculptures and other furnishing elements.
Its clear color makes it easy to combine with antique furniture and especially modern, giving decoration, elegance and brightness to the spaces in which it is located.
