Presented for sale is a late 19th to early 20th century French Ormolu mounted mahogany and amaranth Louis XVI style Console Desserte. The console is modeled after similar pieces created in the workshops of Henry Dasson (1825-1896) copied from the original by Jean-Henri Riesener (1734–1806).
The console features a molded Sienna marble top resting atop a guilloche acanthus-mounted frieze with a central drawer, which is flanked by D-shaped sides. The paneled back is supported, in the front, with pilasters mounted in ribbon-tied trailing flowers above an open marble topped shelf. The console is raised on tapering legs with leaf-cast sabots. The bronze mounts are very finely cast with sharp detail.
This is a formal Paris piece that would be exceptional placed in an entrance hall or dining room. It is in excellent condition and beautifully constructed.
Size: 39 ½” Height by 46” Width by 16” Depth.
