Detail Description

An Italian Carved Giltwood Console Table, with a serpentine veneered Alabastro listato marble top above a pierced frieze with garlands and C and S-scrolls, on scrolled legs with pronounced C-scrolls and flowerheads terminating in s-scrolls feet joined by an X-form shaped stretcher centred with a cartouche from which emerges c-scrolls of elongated leaves and flowerheads, the whole carved with flamed rocaille, flowers and foliage.
Positively rare in its transitional, original shape and design, this console table was almost certainly once one of a pair and part of a larger, imposing suite of furniture.
Circle of Giuseppe Corsini
Rome, ca. 1740–50
