19th century French Carved Oval Coffee Table Black Forest Lodge Animal Oak
19th century French Carved Oval Coffee Table Black Forest Lodge Animal Oak.
Direct from France, a majestic and substantial antique French “hunt” oval coffee table. Stunning hand carved details--one glance reveals the superior quality of the massive carvings. Possibly commissioned for an aristocratic hunting lodge, circa 1890, in the Black Forest region of Europe, where France, Germany, and Switzerland meet.
The huge base is a carving masterpiece, with four different dimensional carved animals, including a fox, boar, stag and hunting hound. Each animal is posed upon a large carved scroll base, and features superb carved details; note the hair, the eyes, the legs, the shape of the bodies! Lovely craftsmanship and artistry!
Thick, turned and carved center baluster provides balance and support; the large oak, oval top features a carved beveled edge and wide banded apron. Circa 1890.
Measurements: 20.25” ht. x 40.5” x 45”.
