circa: Late 1800s
A masterfully executed marquetry side table in LXV/LXVI Transition style, from the late 1800s. The top, shelf and round sides have extensive marquetry, with a repeating floral design set into a checkerboard of alternately orientated wood grain. Each of the four legs bears marquetry with bows and swags. Predominantly cherry wood with fruitwood inlay. A single drawer in front has a brass handle; pierced brass gallery along the top and two brass shell sabots on the front legs. At the center the legs are straight as is typical for Louis XVI style, from the shelf down they have the attenuated S curve of Louis XV style. An exquisite petite addition for anyone who appreciates old world craftsmanship.
Condition: Some slight age cracks on the veneer, typical for a piece this old. Minor age tarnishing on brass gallery. Support hardware was added under the shelf at a later date.
