Description

This étagère, or shelved side table, is wrought from gilt metal and cloisonné enamel in the ornate yet restrained Empire style. The table is supported by three gilt metal fluted columns, each column terminating in an ornate hoof foot and culminating in a lion mask capital. The columns support three equally spaced circular shelves, each shelf formed of a cloisonné enamel shallow plate bordered by a pierced gilt metal gallery. Each plate is decorated with delicate portrayals of birds and peonies above a sky-blue enamel ground.
