Charles X Ormolu Mounted Bronze Centre Table
A Charles X ormolu bronze centre table, a sienna (Giallo Siena) variegated circular marble top with a trailing vine cast border upon a foliated capped urn shaped shaft with scrolling acanthus, raised upon a substantial ormolu bronze tripod base with a bold acanthus and palmette capped baluster stem, a complementary leaf band below, issuing three fluted and volute scroll legs, each with a circular leaf capped brass and iron caster.
This rich but elegant French center table is of the typical form with a stoutly constructed oak carcass. It is entirely sheathed in bronze and finished in a warm old gilt finish.
The well-figured circular Siena marble top with rib molded edging is expertly restored and conserved.
This attractive sized table is most unusual and very special in this rather glamorous gilt bronze sheathing.
