Full Description
A very attractive and well carved giltwood console table. The front legs with laurel leaf decorated bulbs, open flower heads and fluted legs with tall peg feet draped with laurels. The frieze with elaborate foliate C scrolls, open flower heads and centred with tied ribbons over a laurel wreath, almost certainly a reference to the Battle of Waterloo and Wellington’s victory over Napoleon in 1815. The side panels carved also with open flower heads and foliate C Scrolls.

In good condition for age with minor wear to the gilt and some alterations – there is a later gilded wooden backboard.

The heavy well shaped top with original Regency white and grey marble with squared polished edge and without cracks, breaks or repairs. There are a few small nibbles/chips to edges at the back rear corners, and small old stains/marks consistent with 200 years of careful use. We have not tried to remove the marks but a good marble cleaner may well lift these out with ease.

The table stands very firmly and well when resting against a wall but will need to be secured in place and there are two holes in the back board for this. As is usual, the marble top is not fixed and is very heavy. This lifts off for transport.

A lovely period example, very eye catching, pretty and elegant. Of small slender proportions perfect for a hallway with restricted space with mirror over and priced to reflect the minor faults.
