By Dasson, Henry (French, 1825-1896)
This sophisticated antique guéridon is a wonderful example of Dasson's inventive style, which updated existing furniture forms to create unique works.
This guéridon, fashioned in the Louis XVI style, is inset with a marble top that is encompassed by an ormolu (gilt bronze) border, the ormolu signed and dated 'Henry Dasson 1884'. The top is supported by three sets of twin-columnar, ring-turned bamboo form legs, which are joined at the lower section by a solid wooden stretcher and raised by three ormolu sabots below.
This guéridon is by Henry Dasson (French, 1825-1896), after a model by Adam Weisweiler (French, c. 1750 - after 1810). Dasson's choice of design for this table was taken from Adam Weisweiler's celebrated 'guéridon doubles colonnettes', its typical characteristics comprising the bamboo shaped legs and the marble inset top. Some variations were made where the top would be inset with Wedgwood porcelain, lacquer, or lapis lazuli. Examples of these tables are known to have been supplied to Madame du Barry and the Comte Skavronsky.
