This magnificent Rococo Revival pedestal is an outstanding example of the elaborate furniture artistry of late 19th-century France.  Boasting an elegant bombé-shape, this remarkable pedestal features intricate marquetry inlay, and is adorned with exceptionally executed doré bronze in the manner of Leon Message. A beautiful marble top crafted of Italian Breccia marble completes this exuberant piece.

A revival of the luxurious Louis XV style took place in France in the mid-19th century. It came about as part of the preference during this period, known as the Second Empire, for a mixture of styles from previous centuries. Largely due to the influence of Emperor Napoleon III, who wished to have his name associated with the classical grandeur of Rome and cement his place in French history, Eclecticism reigned as craftsmen revisited the most opulent styles from decades past and created their own elaborate versions. Artisans found their inspiration in the designs of many time periods, including the Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassic Louis XVI. Inspiration also came from the near and far East, as the treasures of China, Japan and Constantinople made their way to Europe.

Circa 1870
