C1820 French Walnut Charles X Guerdon/Wine Table


This delightful snap top wine table is solid walnut and is French, made during the reign of Charles X. When the Bourbon monarchy was restored to the throne 1814, after Napoleon, three kings form the period  called Restauration. The Restauration period comprises two of the ill fated Louis XVI's brothers: Louis XVIII and Charles X, and a cousin, Louis Philippe. Note the different spelling from the 1660 onwards English Restoration period. It drives my Mac wild! It hates the au. The colour is excellent and the top has a dish: a raised lip. The turnings are characteristic, as are the legs with what the English call the "Regency knee" on their own furniture of this time.
