Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Each gueridon has an unusual amethyst quartz, shaped circular marble top, within a reeded, ribbon and acanthus-cast rim. The tables are raised on four scrolled legs each headed by a foliate caryatid espagnolette, united by a spiral 'X'-frame stretcher centred by a foliate mount.
The delicate fusion of exuberant rococo and art nouveau, and in particular the handling of the female espagnolettes, with their open bodices, reveals the hand of the gifted sculptor and designer Léon Messagé who collaborated with Zwiener for the 1882 Exhibition in Paris and later worked with François Linke on his important stand for the 1900 Paris Exhibition.
