French, late 19th Century

This wonderfully little side table—also functional as a petit dressing table—is a fine example of 19th century French design. The table is crafted in the Louis XV Rococo style, with a bombe shaped body and cabriole legs. The surfaces throughout are profusely adorned with vernis Martin, depicting scenes drawn from the classical canon: Venus and cherubs aloft in clouds, for instance. The table is extensively mounted with gilt bronze, also wrought in the Rococo style. The top lifts to reveal a shallow compartment and a mirror, while the front of the piece contains a single drawer.
