This rosewood tea table is a beautiful piece of early 20th Century French furniture. It is designed in the 18th-Century Rococo, or Louis XV, style.
The table has a shaped rectangular top, which is exquisitely decorated with a marquetry design. This features a central motif which is composed of scrollwork and stylised flowers, and a decorative border containing flower trails, scrolled foliage and cartouches. This top is edged with a gilt bronze (ormolu) band and fitted with two gilt bronze handles.
The table is supported by four cabriole legs which are linked by a shaped stretcher. The legs are decorated with foliate gilt bronze mounts and they terminate in scrolled gilt bronze feet.
