1785 Ebonized French Antique Empire Tea Table Candle Stand
Gorgeous World Class French Empire Side Table
Museum Quality Restoration
Circa 1775-1820 Luxurious beauty...that's what this table exudes Incredible Bronze mounts I love the goddesses that sit high atop the legs. the swags between the table legs are spectacular, of course the leaves on the pedestal are regal. Some of the photos were taken with the top in direct sunlight, this showcases the "shimmering" effect on the inlaid top. The wood seems to come to life in direct sunlight, amazing & very beautiful Details, Details, Details.....every where you look beautifully showcased details, the table top design is excellent, matched by the wonderful inlaid top, notice the gallery style trim all around the top, solid cast bronze I restore fine antiques, this table required some world class attention & meticulous restoration. I restored this table to museum standards. I regilt the 3 goddesses & touched up 2 of the swags(between the legs) The inlaid parquetry top is stunning, it features outstanding grain pattern matches that give it a shimmering effect . I hand waxed the top, it looks rich! Intricate line/border inlay around entire top The top appears to be Kingwood & Mahogany, the side skirts of the top are mahogany veneers over solid mahogany This table was entirely handmade, likely in France The solid mahogany pedestal support directly under the top I custom made to restore the table to pedestal. Then I fixed the pedestal to the support with a large dowel and mahogany wedge, the finest of sophisticated cabinet making techniques. The table is rock solid, very heavy and restored to museum quality....by design I left some character marks and imperfections in both the wood & the hardware. The top has some filled holes and a tiny spot of worn veneer....just as you would expect with any fine antique of this period A wonderful piece of history...........restored to stately glory A visual delight, you will love this fine piece
