Adorned under the belt with important laurel garlands, the console table rests on four fluted tapering square feet, headed by rosettes, the feet ending in lion s paws on balls. They are joined by a stretcher, with a carved classical vase at its center. The vase is decorated with an entrelacs frieze and a flame finial. A laurel garland is held by two lateral rings serving as handles; it falls onto the stretcher.
