Bearing the label of a former 19th century owner - a professor of Lyon University.
While the form of this console table is typical of early Empire design, the cluster column supports are a rare feature. They show the clear influence of Roman architecture which was embraced by cabinet makers at this time. It has a monumental appeal as a result. This table would have graced a grand entrance hall in an important house or sat beneath a large mirror in a salon. The use of walnut links it to a provincial city such as Lyon (pieces made in Paris were more typically constructed using mahogany).
