PAIR OF CONSOLES "AUX GUIRLANDES DE FLEURS" Gilded
wood and white lacquered, marble Inventory
marks in ink
H. 88 cm, W. 112 cm, D. 61 cm
This elegant pair of consoles is characteristic of Italian productions borrowing from French neoclassicism motifs and shapes adapted to Italian taste. The wide full belt, with fretworked sides and underlined by a string of pearls, is decorated with a gilt decoration on a cream lacquered background consisting of a garland of flowers au naturel. They stand on four fluted, tapered and rudent legs joined by a spacer consisting of a thin rod decorated with rows of ovules and centered by a covered vase decorated with water leaves. These brackets have a particular construction where the massiveness of the base and the fineness of the spacer are in opposition for a harmonious effect.
