Antique Louis XVI Style Parcel Paint Console Table from France, Circa 1870

This Louis XVI style, parcel paint, wall console with inset marble top has a very elegant shape. It is more linear in its lines that the previous Louis XV period of scrolls and curves. However, because of that, its form needs to have interest in its ornamentation. This console achieves this by stepped in and stepped out lines at the top molding and apron. Also, the asymmetrical stretcher accommodates narrower front legs and wider back legs which support the console top at different positions. There is an urn at the center of the stretcher. Most of the motifs are foliate in nature. The finish is a beautiful mix of exposed wood, parcel white paint, and subtle gold highlights.

CONDITION: Good strong antique condition with losses and minor chips to finish throughout.
