These beautiful antique Italian console tables are painted in an old rose and ochre/gold, and when pushed together, form a lovely octagonal center table. The consoles are relatively plain in their structure: well-considered moldings, no drawers in the underframing, and elegant baluster shaped legs, connected by stretchers. This style of table first became popular in Northern Italy in the 17th century, with Bologna producing some of the finest examples.
What sets these tables apart is their gorgeous polychrome finish consisting of old rose paint with light gold ochre moldings, bun feet, and painted motifs. The table fronts and sides are decorated with relatively simple designs, while the top is a wonderful, full size, complex design of scrolling foliation and Neoclassical arabesque forms. Use these tables in a hallway, or along the same wall flanking a fireplace. Or simply push them together to form a center table or entry piece.
CONDITION: Good overall antique condition. Some chips and losses to finish as seen in photos. Painted finish is old, but likely not original. Craquelure to paint and minor nicks, Old worming to underside of some boards (not visible from above).
