French Provincial Fruitwood and Black Marble Side Table
FRENCH PROVINCIAL FRUITWOOD AND BLACK MARBLE SIDE TABLE
Circa late 19th century
Item # 801DMG31
This angular and delightful French Provincial table is beautifully crafted in the Louis XVI taste, the tidy repeated stop-fluting around the swollen baluster column is mirrored in the arched fluting of the tri-footed base. The top is particularly attractive, a beautiful black Belgian marble surrounded by a pierced brass gallery. The entire table rests over bun feet. The dense fruitwood is likely Cherry, the surface silky from years of hand-waxing and polishing; this has remained mostly untouched and a nice dark oxidization has built up on the surface in crevices throughout. It is an excellent piece for presentation of sculpture, as a side table by the sofa, as a plant stand or in any number of other design scenarios.
