NEOCLASSICAL POLYCHROMED AND PAINTED DEMILUNE CONSOLE TABLE
Italian, circa late 19th century
Item # 911CHE16
A gorgeous little demilune form console table, the top is painted in a chaotic rust and cream that perhaps simulated marble when it was originally completed. It has naturally worn, revealing hints of the gesso applied over the pine to level the surface as painted portions have chipped away. This projects just slightly over the simple teal painted apron, the same color used in the legs with a rusty-gold highlight to the moldings, carved drapes of garland along the legs and the insets of the fluting. The console is intended to be affixed to the wall with screws through the back.
Measurements: 30 7/8" H x 13" D x 32 3/4" W
Extensive wear and chipping to painted surface, including chipping through the gesso. Sturdy and strong joints.
