1920s French Shaped Marble Top Lion Motif Console Table
A dramatic 19th c. shaped marble top mounted on a pair of early 20th c. stone lion monopodia pedestals from France c.1920 having excellent cast details. This piece resided in the potting area of a grand glass house where it saw daily duty as a platform to arrange flowers for use inside the main house. Please look at the wonderful patina of the stone supports accrued by years of being in a moist hothouse environment. The use of the ferocious lion standing upon a single paw comes from the ancient world and was a favourite motif used by persons of learning and wealth for centuries. By moving this piece indoors the unexpected juxtaposition of materials creates an intriguing effect.
