A Fine Louis XVI Style Oval Three Tier Gueridon After The Model by Simon Phillippe Poirier and Martin Carlin.
French, Circa 1870.
This fine and unusual gueridon has three graduating oval shelves surmounted by a pierced gallery and supported by an octagonal central column. The column is raised on three serpentine legs, each with a scrolling acanthus leaf terminal.
This form of gueridon is based on a celebrated model conceived by the marchand-mercier Simon Philippe Poirier around 1770, and executed by Martin Carlin, maitre in 1776.
