Item # 6593
A stunning and monumental Italian 18th century Louis XVI period patinated and giltwood trumeau. The trumeau is raised by a mottled giltwood base with coeur de rai patterns and finely carved rosettes at each side. The original mirror plate is framed within an elegant twisted band and acanthus leaf carved border. Leading up each side, set on a teal patinated background, are a most impressive array of richly carved giltwood flowers and floral patterns with detailed personages at the center and framed in a beaded giltwood band. The impressive top crown is centered by a fine urn with flowers on a patinated teal background with scrolling foliate rinceau patterns, flanked by scrolled capitols with swaging floral garlands. Finely carved with all original gilt and patina.
