Beautiful Pair of neo-Renaissance stands

France
Circa 1880

Height : 122 cm (48 in.) ; Width : 43 x 43 cm (17 in.)

Pair of Renaissance style stands, made in natural walnut, carved and engraved. Composed of two panels connected by a baluster shaped stretcher and terminated in lions paws. Adorned with Renaissance motifs, such beads, cartouches, « grotesques », lions masks and shells. Topped with red « Griotte » marble.

Widely used since the fifteenth century. Walnut is propice to sculpture. His warming color with its wonderful shimmering patina echoed very well the silks and tapestries in the Renaissance interiors.
