Parisian work from the Louis XVI period around 1785, to be compared to the productions of Georges Jacob.

Our opinion :
If at first glance our console may seem very sober to an untrained eye, the collector will detect in a few seconds the ingredients of a beautiful production.
A console with a complex design, but with pure and easily readable lines, embellished with a very fine sculpture, with several registers, in oak wood and topped with a luxurious breccia marble from Aleppo.
These elements allow us to situate it in a large Parisian workshop in the decade 1780-1790.
A label present on the reverse of the crosspiece, which dates from the beginning of the century and which mentions a storage unit in Neuilly sur Seine, reinforces our hypothesis.
The shape of the spacer, but also the neo-classical decoration and the very particular decorative register of our console are to be compared to the productions of Georges and Henri Jacob.
We find this apparent simplicity on a few rare consoles from their workshops, in particular on those delivered for the bathroom of Madame Adélaïde in Versailles, or for the Salon de Mesdames at the Château de Bellevue.
