Made in France, this marble top foyer console with mirror boasts elegance in spades! Made around the year 1940, the gilt wood, marble, and glass all combine to create an impressive look in the Louis XV style. This piece will make a grand greeting to all who enter your home!
Carved Gilt Wood Base
The stunning base boasts intricate carvings throughout. These carvings continue down each cabriole leg and end in elaborate scrolled feet. Dark shading in the recesses of the carvings really sets them off. This combined with the golden gilding of the wood allows for a stunning effect.
The marble top of this foyer console with mirror is mostly black with white and grey veins. Figured to match the overall shape of the console, it pairs perfectly! Also, the contrasting dark color of the marble versus the gilt wood exemplifies one of the characteristics of the Louis XV style.
The serpentine shaped mirror is a separate piece that can be installed sitting directly on the marble (but still mounted to the wall for stability) or hanging a few inches above it. The glass boasts a brilliant reflection and no spotting has occurred. Meanwhile, the gilt wood and carved frame matches the base perfectly in style and color.
Marble Top Foyer Console with Mirror Condition
The overall condition of this console remains quite good! The piece remains sturdy, strong, and ready to be used daily in your home. The marble does have a repair to it, about one-third of the way in from the right side that is hard to see unless looking for it. There are a few small places on the base where the gilt has been rubbed or bumped off like around the bottom of the back right foot. A few minor wear marks and age separations at the joints, consistent with age and use, do exist as well.
The height from the floor to the top of the marble measures 35.5″. Meanwhile, the total height of the mirror is 48.5″.
