Rouge De Languedoc Marble and Carved Stone Dining Table from France, 1940s

This stunning French table is made of beautifully carved marble and limestone.  The marble top is known as Languedoc Rouge, named after the region in which it's found, in the South of France. This marble was first quarried in Roman times, and later used extensively in the building and decoration of Versailles as well as many fireplace mantels in the 18th century. This table top has subtle in-carving at the corners, adding more interest to the rectangle. The red coloration is mixed with greys and whites. The stone bases are c-scrolls with acanthus leaf detailing and a central stylized shell between them. They rest upon a plinth with one stepped-in molding and beneath it, a stepped-out molding over a rectangular base.  These are hand-carved French limestone. This beautiful, bright, and elegant French marble and stone table will be the focal point of any room.

CONDITION:  Very good condition with an old restoration to one of the bases. Minor chips and rubs to limestone as seen in photos.
