The table consists of a circular veined green marble top, supported on an ormolu and tole base. The pierced ormolu frieze is designed in the form of interlacing foliage, set on a tole backing. The table stands on four ormolu legs, in the form of caryatids holding flower baskets on their heads, above a gilt and patinated bronze square column with florally decorated mounts, all supported by fluted ormolu feet. The legs are joined by a curved interlaced stretcher with a patinated bronze top.

The design of the table is in the manner of the celebrated 18th Century maker Adam Weisweiler (French, 1744-1820), and has been attributed to the Italian-born French maker of the 19th Century, Paul Sormani (French, 1817-1877). An almost identical gueridon by Paul Sormani sold at Christie's London, 17 March 2011, lot 305.
