XIX century Pail of Italian Louis XIV style – Regency Giltwood Gueridon
The gueridon couple, made in Venice (Italy) in the nineteenth century, is inspired by the style of Louis XIV and Regency (or Regency), established between the second half of the seventeenth century, through the spread of the taste of the Sun King and the furnishings he wanted for the castle of Versailles, until the 1820s.
The gueridon, executed in carved and golden wood, are therefore characterized by symmetrical shapes and sumptuous decorations distinguished by volutes and phytomorphic elements.Designed to be placed against a wall, they have a lacquered wooden top in fake marble, with a mixed and wavy perimeter.The band below the floor, moved and fashioned, is decorated, in the centre, by a carved shell element.The gueridons are supported by a single leg, richly carved with leaf decorations, volutes, ovules and geometric patterns.The base, in tripod, is structured with three large curly feet that are inserted on the central leg with a volute.
Gueridon can be used as small coffee tables, bases for lamps, statues, bronzes, vases and cachepot or other decorative objects.They are very elegant furniture elements, easily inserted in salons and studios, entrances and corridors.The brightness of the gold leaf and the richness of the carvings give this pair of coffee tables outstanding decorative, making them suitable for environments furnished with antique furniture, but especially in modern contexts such as special and sophisticated objects
