A magnificent French Louis XVI style pair of consoles


An eye-catching pair of demi-lune mahogany consoles dating from around 1950, and made by craftsmen in the Faubourg Saint Antoine, a district of Paris renowned for centuries for its wood, furniture and cabinet-making. Created in the style of Conrad Mauter, an 18th century craftsman celebrated for his Louis XVI furniture, these charming tables are inlaid with mahogany and rosewood on the facade and flanks, and are fitted with ornate gilt brass mounts on each of the four fluted and baluster turned legs. White marble tops are encircled by an openwork and gilded bronze gallery. A central frieze drawer provides storage above, with a shaped under tier below. These charming pieces are in excellent vintage condition, and their curvaceous lines would look fabulous in any room or hallway.
