A very handsome pair of Italian 19th century Empire Neo-Classical st. walnut and ormolu side tables. One has a large drawer with a flip up façade that opens to a shelf, and the other a large door that opens to a shelf. Both have a drawer at the base, all with finely chased ormolu lion heads with ring pulls. Flanked on each side are walnut columns with ormolu top and bottom caps, and ormolu borders at the base and frieze. At the apron is a wide drawer decorated with foliate brass inlays centered with an ormolu lion ring pull. The solid walnut tops display wonderful grain within an ormolu trim. All original warm patina throughout.
