"Athenian Pedestal"Exceptional is rare Athenian forming a pedestal table. Period First Empire Exceptional is rare Athenian forming a pedestal table. First Empire period the top is in marble marquetry veneer on a black marble base from the same period (circa around 1804, old repair, easily repairable with a good marble maker, This should no longer be seen. Slight small lack in the plating around of the pedestal table.) This type of tray called the object of the grand tour, in fact the person who made this tray was touring Europe to collect small samples and then make this magnificent tray that we present. Notice to lovers of rare objects and the period of the first empire! Very beautiful ornamentation of gilded bronze such as Medici vase, rosette palmettes and very beautiful guilloche.
