Small Greek console, P.Pillot in Nimes around 1780

Beautiful small console in green lacquered lime wood.
The stems with wide cut sides are fluted and rudent with asparagus.
They are surmounted by Ionic capitals which support the connecting dice of the sleepers.
The front crosspiece adorned with a ribbed groove frieze and a central reserve highlighted with triglyphs.
It features an antique urn crisscrossed with two olive branches.

Good condition, old lacquer but probably originally gilded.

Nîmes work from the Louis XVI period around 1780, attributable to Pierre Pillot.

Dimensions:

Width: 100 cm; Depth: 70 cm; Height: 76 cm

Our opinion :

With its square feet with wide grooves and its decorative “antique” repertoire, the console we are presenting is attributable to the carpenter Pierre Pillot.

Coming from the seraglio of Parisian carpenters, he apprenticed with Mathieu Bauve before settling around 1770 in Nîmes near the market place, where he worked until 1822.

Very quickly obtaining a great reputation, he produced most of the large sets of joinery in the castles of Provence.

If the beds, sofas, armchairs, chairs and other wall consoles come out of his workshop, he also offers furniture, such as wardrobes and chests of drawers, freeing himself from the Parisian law on corporations which reserves this type of manufacture to cabinet makers.

We know of a few gilded wood tables by his hand, two of which passed through our gallery in the past.

Inspired by the Roman monuments of the city of Gard, he offers us here a perfectly balanced design, with flowing lines, in the purest neoclassical style.
