A pair of Swedish neoclassical style painted wood demilune console tables from the late 19th century, with faux-marble tops, waterleaf motifs and carved rosettes. Born in Sweden during the later years of the 19th century, each of these demilunes features a semi-circular marbleized top, sitting above an elegant apron, adorned with waterleaf motifs accented with elongated rosettes on the knees. Each table is raised on three tapered legs with fluted motifs and cavetto molding in its upper section, and painted in a light color typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft palettes, aiming at brightening the homes of Sweden during the long winters. With their classical silhouettes and elegant décor, these Swedish neoclassical style demilune tables circa 1880, will bring a graceful touch to any home, particularly in a foyer or living room.
