19th Century Italian Renaissance Walnut Serving Table with Tray



19th century Italian Renaissance walnut serving table with tray is a remarkable example of the wood sculptor's art! Elaborate, curvaceous design is influenced by the Renaissance and by the Baroque style that followed, and at first glance one notices the anthropomorphic lion's heads on the shoulders at the top of the cabriole legs, the remainder of which feature carved blending into the intricately carved apron above, with carving all the way down to the escargot feet. The legs are also connected with double-lyre stretchers centered with a rosette for attractive strength. The aforementioned apron features prominent shells as the focal points on each long side, with the oval shape above enhanced by a removable solid walnut tray. The tray boasts finely carved handles integral to the work, with foliate flourishes surrounding the entire rim and intaglio carving on the surface. Another amazing aspect peculiar only to such works is the fact that when one lifts the tray to serve guests, even the surface underneath has been carved intaglio style with exquisitely scrolled foliates, so no matter what, everyone views a beautiful table under all circumstances, circa 1890s Measures: 30 H x 30 W x 18 D.
