moreThis is a stunning antique English limewood console table, dating to the second half of the 18th century. The style is transitional, with motifs from George II and George III. The table is surmounted by a beautiful verde marble top conforming to the rectangular apron with a slight overhang. The four legged consoles always had one undecorated side which would be placed against something, such as a wall, a sofa, etc. In the late 17th Century through the 18th Century, large console tables were a definite fashion statement for the aristocrat’s magnificent home.
This console table is adorned with carved motifs of large rams heads at the four corners combined with festoons of foliate and floral motifs emanating from their horns. All this is inspired from from Greek and Roman Temple Art. At the center front of the apron is an oval motif with a depiction of a Roman Emperor. To either side of the Emperor motif is a demi-figure of a lion with a foliate tail. The sides of the apron have the same foliate and floral festoons emanating from the horns with a central floral basket. The apron has linear motifs at the top and bottom and the feet are cloven hooves. This rare English console is very refined and will be the focal point of any room it is placed in.
