Carved and gilded oak wood console in a rectangular shape, decorated with a large central shell in the belt, with latticework motifs of acanthus leaves, sunflowers and fleurons on a latticework background. The console base made of involuntary sticks is joined by a flat spacer centered with an acanthus leaf and fleuron motif. A third foot in a posterior central position of support forms a pilaster decorated with fleurons and a shell in adequacy with the belt. The whole decoration is unified by a fine and elegant reparure which contributes to the achievement of the work of burnished and amatis of the gold leaves of the master gilder while sublimating the power of the master sculptor. The whole is topped with a marble leaf in Rance of Flanders. The marble of Rance of Flanders is a variety of marble of red color, striped with gray veins and white and bluish spots. Under the influence of François-Michel Le Tellier, Marquis de Louvois Superintendent of the King's Buildings 1641-1691 it obtained a great fame thanks to the intensive use that was made of it during the decoration of the Château of Versailles.
