Lot Essay

The marble, with bow-serpentined front and columnar corners, is supported on a picturesque acanthus-wrapped frame with fretted cartouche displaying a garlanded flower-basket that evokes bacchic festivities in the Golden Age. It relates to a 'French Marble Table' pattern in B. Langley's, The City and Country Builders and Workman's Treasury of Designs, 1740 (pl. 146).
