Consoles, Louis XV, XVIII

Richly carved and openwork oak console. Resting on four legs, this piece is distinguished by an abundant, fine and largely openwork sculpture.

The belt, whose abundance of openwork is appreciated, presents rock carvings, natural and floral motifs. In the center, an exploded pomegranate is caught in a large openwork acanthus leaf and framed by flowers arranged in slight asymmetries.

On the cushioning of the four generously curved feet in curves and counter-curves, sculpted shells give way to volutes, scrolls of flowers and end in palmette motifs.

The sculpted spacer connecting the four legs has an asymmetrical central nut decorated with a large shell and floral scrolls.

This console, representative of the Rocaille ornaments particularly highlighted by the influence of the Marquise de Pompadour, is topped with its original marble: the breach of Aleppo. This predominantly yellow marble, made up of colored fragments, comes from the Tholonet quarry, near Aix-en-Provence, and bears further witness to the Provençal provenance of this console, preserved until now in a large family from the Toulon region.

Louis XV period, 18th century.
