An Exceptional Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted Mahogany Centre Table by Henry Dasson.

This elegant and very rare centre table or gueridon by Henry Dasson, is designed in the 'goût Weisweiler' and is of exhibition quality, with superb gilt-bronze mounts.

The table has a Verde Antico marble top above a stiff-leaf cast rim and a conforming frieze, which is mounted with allegorical trophies. The top is raised on finely cast and chiselled alternating male and female herm supports, united by an interlaced stretcher and stands on spirally-fluted feet.

An example of this model of table by Dasson, dated 1867, was formerly in the collection of Pierre Lecoules, and is illustrated in D. Ledoux-Lebard, 'Le mobilier français du XIXe siècle'. An 1884 example, also by Dasson, was sold at Christie's, London, 29 March 2007, lot 96. Further examples of this model were also made by Dasson's contemporary Paul Sormani (d.1877).

The exceptional quality of the gilt-bronze mounts to this table epitomise the 'goût Weisweiler', much favoured by Dasson and based on the celebrated work of Louis XVI's maître, Adam Weisweiler and his marchand mercier Dominique Daguerre in the 18th century.
