PAIR OF FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE PARQUETRY ECOIGNURES. Late 19th Century Item # 1404ULX14-A. Mottled cream and gray thick hand carved and finished original marble tops position on short dowels protruding from the top, this framed with neat rows of dovetails locking the golden oak top into the sides and corners of the case. A single door on each cabinet opens over original brass hinges to reveal a tidy interior with a pair of oak shelves, the front edges veneered to match the case; these shelves are easily removable, resting on original oak bars affixed in the interior with steel screws.
The gilt bronze mounts are quite fine: the top corners overlaid with a deep and intricate rococo motif of twisted acanthus leaves, the apron hosting a sprawling display of foliage with scattered blooms of flowers, the sabots acanthus in profile and curling tightly in beautiful little toes. These are a wonderful selection crafted with a level of quality and attention to detail that rivals some of the best craftsmen of the Belle Epoque. 33 3/4" high (including 1 1/8" thick marble top) x 22 1/2" W x 15 1/4" depth to back corner. Condition Report: Small veneer losses including two chips to top edge over one door, a few chips to aprons, light chip to right edge of one cabinet. Some color variation between the cabinets, one a cognac tone and one a more red hue; cabinet on left (the slightly redder hue) has a spot of lighter tone on door.
One slightly bent but functional key. One marble top with a repaired crack and large chip.Scroll down to view all images for a full overview of condition.
