A PORTUGUESE ROCOCO WALNUT SIDE TABLE
The serpentine top above a pair of frieze drawers over a foliate scroll-carved apron centering addorsed birds, on cabriole legs with claw-and-ball feet
36in. (93cm.) high, 46in. (117cm.) wide, 29in. (74cm.) deep
The scroll-carved apron and attenuated cabriole legs of this table are distinctive Portuguese interpretations of the rococo style. A closely related table is illustrated in T. Canti, Il Mvel no Brasil, Rio de Janeiro, 1985, p.313, pl.325.
