A Fine Empire Style Gilt-Bronze and Mahogany Gueridon
c. 1880 France
Offered by Adrian Alan
The circular verde antico marble top above a mahogany frieze with rosettes and palmette mounts supported by three finely cast and gilded gilt-bronze female caryatid figures. The stretcher centred by an urn flanked by winged sphinx and raised on ball feet.
The design for this important table is derived from the 'console double face' supplied in 1808 by by François-Honoré-Georges Jacob dit Jacob-Desmalter (d. 1841), for the bedroom of Caroline Murat, Napoleon's youngest sister, at the Palais de l'Elysee, Paris. The original design relies heavily on the work of the important architects and designers Percier et Fontaine. Jacobs table is now displayed in the Grand Trianon, Versailles (see D. Ledoux-Lebard, Le Grand Trianon, Meubles et objets d'art, Paris, 1975, vol. I, p. 25).
