"A Louis XV Console Mid 18th Century Circa 1745-1750"Louis XV period wall console in finely carved, molded and waxed linden wood. Curved in shape, its belt is full of curves and sinuous counter-curves elegantly openwork on all its faces. It rests on two feet with double curved inverted windings, joined by a recessed spacer also perforated. Belt and spacer are centered in a large asymmetrical rockery openwork with powerful garlands of flowers and foliage. As beautiful as it is harmonious, this high-quality console is crisscrossed with fine sculptures of great density composed of a succession of rockeries, staples, acanthus, flowers, leaves and pigtails; all punctuated by powerful voluble windings.
