An Italian carved, gilt-wood and marble mounted console table. Now in a private foundation.
Probably executed for the Borghese Family after the Asprucci design, with a rectangular veneered Siena marble top above a frieze centred by a tessera of marmo di Aquitania in a wreath flanked by a band of scrolling foliage, flowerheads and two eagles as terminals, each stop of the fluted turned tapering legs with block collars inside in which are inlaid more oval of verde-antico tesseras, headed by an oval draped husk terminating in foliate carved ball feet.
Rome, late 18th Century.
