Rare pair of gilt oak consoles from the Louis XVI period.

These neo-classical consoles take up in their decorations the architectural elements of the buildings of antiquity.
Thus the three front and side crosspieces are carved with a decoration of ovals and darts as well as a frieze of acanthus leaves.
Eggs and darts and acanthus leaves are commonly used to adorn a cornice or frieze on Ionic capitals and in classical architecture.
The base has four legs joined by an X-shaped spacer, linear behind and rounded on the front. Each of the feet is tapered and has grooves ending at the base with acanthus leaves and in its upper part with an inverted spinning top decorated with laurel leaves.
White Carrara marble top slightly veined with projections at the corners.
One marble from the 18th century and the other from the 19th century.
Parisian work in carved oak from the end of the 18th century around 1780 -1790.
Good original condition. Period gilding with restored and patinated shards of use. Nice overall patina.
