Questions about this piece?


With stylistic influences from the Louis XVI to the Empire period, this beautiful low centre table or gueridon is a superb interior addition, immaculately cast in ormolu and topped with a spotless malachite veneer.

Circular, with a trio of tapering and winged-caryatid legs joined with floral wreaths linked to a central gilt-bronze spur, the table stands on lions paw feet, with a malachite inset surface framed by an egg-and-dart ormolu frieze around the top. 

The sculptural elements display Neoclassical influences from both the Louis XVI period, with the slender forms and combination of figurative elements with slender acanthus and foliate beams, and more the extravagant, ostentatious, and theatrical Empire style. As such, the piece represents the strength of late nineteenth and early twentieth century craftsmanship and design, when beautiful furniture pieces were made by unifying a host of earlier stylistic influences to create unmissable interior additions such as this.
