Large console in shell limestone and red Flanders marble.
The two roll-up square "L" shaped legs are adorned with acanthus leaves and shells and support an impressive 7 cm thick red marble slab with quadruple moldings.
French work in Louis XIV style and from the 19th century around 1850.
Good state of conservation, wear and small gaps in the stone, restoration in marble.
Width: 201 cm; Height: 93.5 cm; Depth: 50.5 cm
Our opinion :
The console service that we present is characteristic of the reign of Louis XIV, who saw marble invade French castles under the impetus of the construction of the Palace of Versailles by the Sun King.
Placed in the dining rooms of the nobility, they made it possible to dress the expensive silver dishes in order to make them visible to the guests.
Our console, made in the first part of the 19th century for an important property in central France, is particularly decorative.
The purity of the forms and the nobility of the materials used, with a 7 cm thick slab, match the desired power effect.
