19th century French mahogany Gueridon table with original marble top
A 19th century (circa 1830) French mahogany Gueridon table with original black and white veined marble top, possibly Vert Maurin - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CAN BE VIEWED BELOW:
The table consists of the original marble top, this being a black and white veined marble, possibly Vert Maurin, with a moulded outer edge supported by a segmented curl mahogany frieze with ball turned moulding below.
This leads down to a turned and finely carved baluster column with foliate and gadroon carved decoration, the base being tri-form and finely carved in the typical French Empire style consisting of three superbly carved legs with foliate carved decoration, terminating with carved paw feet and supported on original porcelain castors.
The Vert Maurin marble was sourced from the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence in France and is no longer quarried, it was used in the making of many types of decorative items in the mid 19th-early 20th centuries.
This table and marble top are in excellent condition for age, are of stable construction and can go straight into a home.
