Luxury Design, Past & Present


An Italian ‘Grand Tour’ marble top and French empire base, the circular top with a multi-petalled rosette comprising dozens of specimen marble segments centred on a malachite roundel, all on a white marble ground within a green border, the triform mahogany base with bold foliate scroll feet enclosing the original castors. Italian and French, circa 1840.

Footnote: it was common practice for wealthy travellers and young aristocrats to bring back pietra dura and micro mosaic panels from their ‘Grand Tours’ and have them set into tables by local cabinet makers.
