This table made in the late 19th century shows a very good gilt and sculpted wood work of which the curved lines and the decoration are inspired by the Rococo style, typical of Louis XV's reign.
Indeed, the four curved feet are connected by a scroll strut in X of which the center is occupied with a beautiful and well sculpted Rococo element in rondebosse with many details. They also are sculpted on their upper and lower parts with acanthus leaves, scrolls, and other Rococo elements. The entablature connecting them and supporting the slab, brings also some movement to the table thanks to its serpentine shape marked with scrolls. The center of the longest sides is adorned with an important stylized shell from where are escaping with profusion interlacings and acanthus leaves, while the shortest ones are also adorned with a beautiful shell in a mild decoration.
The gilt work as the sculpture work of this table are catching the light allowing then a game between shadow and reflection.
