Description & Technical information

The table retains much of its original gilding. The moulded Belgian Fossil marble top is of later date.

A table with very similar cabriole legs, which also terminate in in-scrolled toes of the same type, was formerly in the collection of Louise Melhado in New York. Both tables are likely to originate from the same workshop.
