This charming side table is wrought in the Louis XV style from wood profusely adorned with vernis Martin and mounted with ormolu. The table features four cabriole legs, each lacquered and terminating in an ormolu foliate sabot.

The tabletop portrays Venus surrounded by cherubs lying on a bed of clouds, while the sides depict similar scenes of cherubs in heavenly settings. The hinged tabletop lifts to reveal a shallow cabinet and a mirrored backing, while the front of the body is inset with a cabinet drawer.
