"Pedestal Tea, End Eighteenth Century, Mahogany, Brass."Pedestal tea, late eighteenth century, mahogany, brass, gilt bronze, white marble. Pedestal tea two circular plates of white marble. The top plate, smaller, is wearing a gilt bronze gallery. The barrel with cut sides rests on a tripod base ending in scrolls. Alternating brass and mahogany veneer, the creator plays on materials and light to animate the frame. The shank that connects the lower plate and the upper plate is a fluted column. Always to animate the lines of this table, each flute is plated with gold plated brass. We find this type of pedestal in the collections of prints Mésangère or "In the usual objects of planks and taste" (No. inv. 5081 CD 6, Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris). The simple, harmonious lines of the table recall the work of great cabinetmakers like Bernard Molitor, Charles Erdmann Richter and Adam Weisweiler who worked at the end of the reign of Louis XVI and announced the nineteenth century.
