The inset surface of this exquisite Louis XVI-style table features a stunning example of amethyst. The exceptional design showcases the qualities for which this gemstone is so loved, from its radiating crystalline structure to its rich shades of purple and white. The extraordinary hues of the large stone are enhanced by the stunning golden bronze that supports it. Crafted in the Neoclassical style, the frame is awash in intricate detail. Classical maidens form the legs, which are further adorned by acanthus leaves and floral details, while the serpentine base is lined by an understated, yet elegant beaded border. At the apex, an intricately detailed floral wreath encircles the table, adding the perfect amount of luxury without overwhelming the richness of the stone.

Rich in Neoclassical elegance yet possessing an exotic worldliness, pieces such as this were extremely popular with members of the French and British aristocracy during the early 19th century. This example presents the perfect marriage of exceptional French bronze work and the natural beauty of amethyst.
