A French Louis XIII style walnut side table from the mid-19th century, with tray top, single drawer, turned legs and cross stretcher. Born at a time when France's first president was crowning himself Emperor Napoleon III, this French side table features the traits of the 17th century Louis XIII period, in a manner typical of the Second Empire that aimed at reviving the great styles of the past. The table features a rectangular tray top with canted corners, sitting above an apron presenting a single frieze drawer. The piece is raised on four exquisite turned legs, connected to one another through an H-form cross stretcher and resting on petite ball feet. With its clean Louis XIII lines and lovely walnut patina, this French 1850s side table will bring an elegant touch of tradition to any home.
