This absolutely remarkable and rare stone table from Provence is dated 1570, and from the appearance of the hand-carved motifs, the carving was most likely done by Italians living in France at the time. The stone beneath the hand-cut octagonal tabletop has been left in the rough and its quatrefoil base has hand-carved motifs with very subtle, worn edges.

This 16th century table is in a remarkable state of conservation (some later restorations to top and underside including old metal support). There is scrolling rinceau, acanthus leaves and a rectangular framed date of 1570 inscribed at its center. On two sides we see thick muscular lions legs ending in large lion paws, while the other two sides are well detailed columns with Ionic capitals. This magnificent antique French stone table will be a prime focal point wherever it is placed.

Dimensions as photographed in main shot: Depth=38 3/8. length=38 1/4. Average height=31 inches.

CONDITION: Wonderful old condition with small old restorations and a recent restoration to top. Small iron support and mortar visible in one section of where top meets bottom piece..

Average Height=31, W=38 1/4, D=38 3/8
