We kindly suggest that you read the whole description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. An elegant and refined French coffee table; it is made of ebonized walnut wood; the top, shaped in an original and refined manner, is made of fine "Giallo Siena" marble; the four legs have a slight cabriole shape and are connected below to a comfortable small top with the same outline as the top one, both are garnished with an elaborate border; these borders and the sophisticated trimmings that enrich the upper band and the top of the four legs, are made of ormolu. The coffee table was made in the Louis XV style between 1870 and 1880 by a master craftsman in an artisan workshop in the town of Pont-de-Beauvoisin, a French commune in the department of Isère, nicknamed the city of furniture for its ancient tradition of woodworking. Giallo Siena marble is a natural stone, typical of the Sienese mountains, certainly, one of the most famous and beautiful colored marbles in Italy, appreciated since antiquity for important cladding, decorative objects, and jewelry. The Sienese hills are composed of sedimentary metamorphic rocks formed over millennia as a result of movements of the earth's crust; this location gives Giallo Siena its main peculiarity: each slab without a doubt can be considered a unique piece. Ormolu is a 17th-century English term for the technique by which a finely ground amalgam of high-carat gold and mercury was applied to a bronze object, in short, the ancient "mercury gilding." The combination of fine workmanship and the preciousness of the materials made this coffee table unique and exclusive. Measures diameter cm.46, height cm.74. The table has been restored so in excellent condition. For all our shipments we use special packing materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
