"Console Serving Empire Period."
Important and majestic, this console, with beautiful proportions and architectural forms, is typical of the production of the most famous cabinetmakers of the Empire. It rests on two uprights supported by a pedestal, which are composed, on the front of a console ending with a foot carved in lion 's claw in its lower part and a volute adorned with an acanthus leaf stylized in its In the upper part, behind its two elements are two wide and deep pilasters, dressed under the belt and above the pedestal, with a small molded ebony cornice. The belt, topped with a white marble, is also underlined by a small ebony cornice that is directly underneath the tray. The two shelves are adorned with a large ebony fillet around the perimeter. The white marble brings out the very high quality of mahogany from Cuba. The dark wood moldings and nets offer an extremely seductive contrast, emphasizing the fine grain of the mahogany veneer. This essence was sought under the Empire for its contrasted veining and it was chosen as red as possible. We think that this beautiful piece of furniture was executed by the Jacob dynasty, it could have been stamped "JACOB.FRERES.RUE MESLEE" or "JACOB.DRMESLEE" or even "JACOB.DESMALTER", we attribute it without hesitation to This famous family of cabinetmaker. This console was manufactured in the early nineteenth century. This piece of furniture has been restored with the utmost care by our craftsmen and has been refinished with the stamp.
