Antique Belle Époque French Liquor Side Table by Escalier de Cristal, circa 1890

About

This is a very exciting piece of exquisite craftsmanship by the firm of Escalier de Cristal in Paris, probably executed around the turn of the century. The quality of the table is self-evident in the tiny crisp dovetails, finely cast acanthus gilt bronze sabots and pulls, as well as the deep flowing grains selected for all surfaces. It is a designed with a fine eye for movement and activity, the curving of lines seemingly endless in the carcass with it's conforming shelves and the bold cabriole legs. A breche d'Alep stone top contrasts the brilliant polished brass rim and top overlay around the numerous liquor and glass wells inset into the top, making a very practical serving surface and presentation table for fine liquors. Two tiny drawers swing outward from the case over a large single drawer beneath; while the key has since been separated from the case and is no longer available, the lock is quite crafty in that by locking the bottom drawer two pins are pushed upward to lock the twin upper drawers in place as well. The solid mahogany pair of shelves beneath the case are affixed with tiny iron brackets on each leg, the lower shelf deeply branded on the underside with the signature of Escalier de Cristal. An exceptional table and a very uncommon find, particularly in it's outstanding condition and completeness, this is a very fine acquisition for the refined interior. Literature: Le Mobilier Français du XIXe Siécle, Denise Ledoux-Lebard, 1989, p. 189-192 Measurements: 19" W x 19 1/4" D x 30 1/16" H Condition report: Exceptional condition, original brass top polished and brilliant; slight gap between edge of breche d'alep and brass. One liquor well with a replaced bottom. Verdigris oxidization to bronze sabots. No key. Minor surface scuffs, though all surfaces are vibrant and well preserved overall. A very fine piece.
