A French Louis XVI period hand carved and parcel-gilt wooden console table from the late 18th century, with limestone top and tapered legs. Born in France during the reign of the last monarch of the Ancien Régime, this console table features a rectangular limestone top, sitting above an exquisite apron, adorned with hand carved, parcel-gilt foliage motifs, surrounded by petite beads. The ensemble is raised on two angled tapering legs, accented with acanthus leaves in their upper section, and needs to be secured to the wall. The perfect contrast between the natural wood and the delicate golden accentuation of the carved motifs, combined with the finesse of the décor, will make this French Louis XVI period console table circa 1785 an excellent choice to decorate any foyer or living room.
