This magnificent table is designed in the Empire style, which flourished when Napoleon I was Emperor of France (1804-14). The style was a phase of Neoclassicism, which drew heavily on the art of Imperial Rome and ancient Egypt. It was characterised by its grand classically-inspired motifs, such as sphinxes, busts, laurel and palm leaves, and cornucopias.

The table features a circular top, which has been beautifully inlaid with jasper and rhodonite, and edged with gilt bronze (ormolu). Beneath the table top, there is a black-painted bronze frieze, which is decorated with gilt bronze palm leaf motifs and rosettes. The table is supported on three monopodia supports. These take the form of gilt bronze winged lions, with rhodonite breastplates. Each lion has a foliate lower body and stands on one leg, on a single paw foot. The three monopodia are linked by a gilt bronze stretcher, with a gemstone centre. They are placed on a gilt bronze base, the centre of which is beautifully inlaid with rhodonite and jasper, mirroring the table top.
