C1840 French, Cherrywood Tripod Wine Table


The elegant turned column clearly shows entasis: the bulging out in the middle that the Greeks used to prevent the optical illusion of straight sided columns appearing to be convex. The three flat cut cabriole legs are dovetailed into the column, and there is a globe finial at the base. The circular top is finished with a double D moulding. The table is French and Louis Philippe in period. Louis Philippe is the last of the three kings from Louis XVI's family to rule after the Revolution: the Restauration. (note French spelling differentiates it from the English Restoration Period of the 1660s.
