Manner of Carlin, Martin (French, active 1766-1785) | Dasson, Henry (French, 1825-1896)
These beautiful tables are inspired from important models by Martin Carlin for the Marquise de Brunoy, currently in the Petit Trianon in Versailles.
Finely crafted with a malachite veneer, these desserte console tables are each set with a flat top and two open shelves, with curved edges. The top sections are fitted with shallow drawers which open with a key and are decorated with ormolu draped ribbons. The central shelves are fronted by pierced and draped ormolu bands. Each console table is beautifully set with mirrored backs that reflect any objects placed on the shelves and stand on four legs. The tables are framed in ormolu borders, decorated with classical Louis XVI style motifs.
These versions closely relate to various examples made by 19th Century furniture maker Henry Dasson, also in the manner of Carlin's 18th Century originals. The shape, size and mounts are very similar to known examples by Dasson, generally made with wood and marble instead of malachite.
