The Empire style ormolu-mounted mahogany centre table with a vert maurin marble top with moulded lip, above a frieze with trailing-leaf and rosette mounts, on caryatid supports and mahogany uprights with applied mounts and joined by a stretcher centred by an urn flanked by sphinxes.

Stamped ‘KAHN’ behind the mounts.

The present centre table is after the console double face model designed in 1808 by
Francois-Honore-Georges Jacob dit Jacob-Desmalter (d.1841). The original table was supplied for the bedroom of Caroline Murat, Napoleon’s youngest sister, at the Palais de l’Elysee, Paris. Originally with a top inlaid with a mosaic copied from Herculaneum, but replaced with a marble slab at the end of the nineteenth century,
the table is now in the Grand Trianon, Versailles (see D. Ledoux-Lebard, Le Grand Trianon, Meubles et objets d’art, Paris, 1975, vol.1, p.25).
