Description A fine pair of Italian carved giltwood console tables, Roman, circa 1770

Each with a rectangular back, yellow and white marble top, above a frieze centered by a roundel, one with a recumbent male figure the other with a female figure in drapery, amongst birds and scrolling foliage, with an acanthus leaf clasp at each corner, on leaf-carved stop-fluted legs joined by an X-form stretcher centered by a wicker basket of fruit and flowers;

Measures: 92cm. high, 180cm. wide, 86cm. deep; 3ft. Nin., 5ft. 11in., 2ft. 10in.

The frieze decoration and carving is reminiscent of a pair of console tables in the Quirinale, Rome (see Alvar Gonzalez-Palacios, I Mobili Italiani, Milan, 1996, pp.184-185, no.59). Also typical of Roman furniture are the bulbous knees on the feet and the carved wood wicker basket on the stretcher (see Goffredo Lizzani, Il Mobile Romano, Milan, 1970, p.XXXIV, no.LXX).
