This console consists of a winged putti in the round in blackened wood holding a quiver on the side. On his head rests the top covered with a marble mosaic in which a drawer is included on each side.
This console uses the codes of the great Baroque art developed in the 17th century by Le Bernin in Rome. It was Andréa Brustolon (Belluno 1662-1732), a Genoese sculptor, who developed a whole range of furniture carved with figures in the round for prestigious Italian families such as the Correr, Verrier and San Simeone.
This repertoire will be taken up in France by artists of the reign of Louis XIV and will flourish in particular on cabinets.
