ITALIE, ROME MILIEU DU XVIIIe SIÈCLE
PAIR OF CONSOLES
Carved and gilded wood, alabaster
H. 87 cm, W. 118 cm, D. 61 cm
Characteristic of the luxurious Roman production, this pair of carved and gilded wood consoles testifies to the influence of the French rocaille on the Italian artists of the second half of the 18th century. All curved and counter-curved, each piece of furniture has a belt decorated with fleurons and mantling. The four sharply curved legs are highlighted with acanthus leaves, joined by a richly sculpted spacer centred by a feather. They end in goat's hooves.
