FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE MARBLE TOP HALL TABLE
France, 20th Century
Item # 1404IVP26P
This is an attractive carved antique French table from the early 20th Century - with an old egg-white paint, rough and oxidized, the surface has a nice appeal and growing patina that is very attractive. Intricately carved of the solid, the apron is a complex swirl of foliage with intermingled vines and flowers, flanked by the robust C-scroll carved knees with florals draping amongst scattered acanthus. The legs have a fine cabriole form, tapering softly into the high acanthus ankle and scrolled french toes. Plain molding frames the solid slab of white marble, supported from beneath by an x-stretcher, such that the marble can support great weight with no difficulty. It is a very attractive painted piece for the interior designer or anyone with a Rococo or Louis XV style in their home. Typically used as a hall table, centered in a large entryway with something magnificent on top of it, this antique French table also works well between a pair of chairs or beside a large sofa.
Measurements: 36" x 36" (top diameter) x 30 1/4" high
All leg joints reglued with some glue remaining visible, resulting in a very sturdy and stable structure. The "X" stretcher beneath the marble is probably added or at least strengthened. Marble top with just minor discolorations. Minor breaks, chips, etc. to the carved apron - wear to the feet and wear/loss/discoloration to the paint throughout. Very attractive visually, these minor blemishes giving character to the overall appeal. Sturdy and strong. Please review all images in the slideshow for a full overview of condition.
