An exquisite and large scale French 19th century Louis XVI st. mahogany and ormolu dining table, most likely by Mercier Fréres, Paris. The dining table is raised by four square tapered legs decorated with brass fillets framing kingwood and ending in fine acanthus leaves and ball design wrap around sabots. Each leg has an acanthus leaf top cap below a richly chased rosette at the frieze. The straight frieze with each of the four extensions, retaining their original aprons, is inlaid with an extremely decorative brass fillet framing a protruding kingwood band. At the center is a pair of circular tapered drop down legs. Superb grain throughout. This table, without extensions measures 62.5" in length, and is part of a complete dining suite.
