A rare and fine quality early 19th century (circa 1815) French Empire mahogany centre table with marble top with Egyptian influences of oblong form, stamped 'JACOB'.
This table consists of an off white marble top of oblong form supported on a mahogany base, the top of the base stamped 'JACOB' - we are not able to find proof this table is by Jacob but the style of the table would certainly fall into the period of his furniture.
The base consists of a superbly carved frieze of stylised anthemion with square panels to each corner with carved star decoration.
This leads down to the fine quality supports, each being reeded with carved lattice work decoration with carved lotus leaf design to both the top and bottom, these supports leading down to a decorative base with carved stars below the supports and scrolling acanthus decoration with carved paterae.
The base all joined with a central moulded stretcher with carved star decoration to the top with harebell and foliate carved decoration terminating with turned ball feet.
This table consists of Egyptian influences and carved decoration similar to those found on pieces by Henri Jacob (1753-1824) who was cousin of the famous cabinetmaker, Georges Jacob - as mentioned we cannot authenticate the stamp 'JACOB' as being genuine or not but the table is certainly of excellent quality and was made by a fine maker.
This table is in excellent condition for age, is of stable construction and can go straight into a home.
Please note: the bronze featured is not included in the price
