A most elegant and high quality French 19th century Louis XV st. mahogany and ormolu side table. The table is raised by fine cabriole legs with detailed wrap around ormolu sabots with paw feet and large acanthus leaf designs. A fine ormolu chute connects the sabots to the striking and richly chased floral corner mounts below a tied ribbon, all in a stunning satin and burnished finish. The legs are connected by a mahogany bottom tier with concave sides and a reeded and mottled ormolu border. At the apron are recessed panels framed within a finely etched and chased ormolu border. Above is the original circular Brocatelle d'Espagne marble top framed within a beautiful pierced ormolu gallery above a hammered design. All original gilt throughout.
