An exceptionally fine late 18th Century Louis XVI period Bois de Citronnier and Amaranth Inlaid, Brass Mounted and Nero Marquinia Marble Topped Octagonal Gueridon Table

French, c. 1785.

The octagonal, revolving and tilting top, with conforming highly figured Nero Marquinia marble inset, banded in citronnier and amaranth and finely strung with ebony and boxwood, mounted with brass moulding around the edge, above a hexagonal center column decorated with fluted marquetry, over three scrolled citronnier veneered legs, having amaranth-banded edges.

The exquisite craftsmanship, fine detail, use of exotic veneers and rare marble, as well as superb proportions and sublime design, of this piece, suggest its aristocratic provenance and one of France’s best furniture-makers of the day.

The top is crafted of rare and beautifully veined Nero Marquinia marble, fashionable during the reign of Louis XVI and only used for the finest furniture, the true masterpieces of decorative arts, highly praised for its rare colour.

Fine antique condition. Minor restorations. Extremely rare in this size and quality.
