A French Napoleon III period guéridon table from the mid-19th century, with floral marquetry decor and turned pedestal. Born at the beginning of the reign of France's last emperor Napoleon III, this French inlaid pedestal table features a circular top, adorned with an exquisite décor of marquetry. A delicate bouquet of flowers, inlaid in ebony, walnut and lemon, is surrounded by a series of key moldings, whose calm rhythmic presence provides an elegant frame to the central motif. The colors alternate beautifully between light and darker tones, creating a lively effect on the top. The table is raised on a central turned pedestal resting on a tripod base. In perfect subtlety, the three scrolled feet are exquisitely adorned with inlaid motifs in their upper section, reminiscent of the feathers of an arrow. With its graceful lines and refined décor, this Napoleon III guéridon table circa 1850 will bring a touch of elegance to any home, whether placed in a living room, bedroom or foyer.
