Parisian work from the Louis XV period around 1750.
Our opinion :
The rocky richness of the decor of our console places it in the middle of the Louis XV period in the 1750s.
The complexity of the decor and the search for balance undeniably shows us that it is the fruit of the research of an ornamentalist.
Due to the proximity of the design to other known consoles, we are leaning towards a composition by Pierre Contant d'Ivry (1698-1777).
Our hypothesis is reinforced by the rare original lacquer that our console sports, which allows us to imagine it, integrated into a larger set of woodwork, and which corresponds perfectly to the large decorations of castles, made by the architect in the years 1750-1760 in Paris.
