Antique French Marble Stone Console Serving Server Garden Table France circa 1890

Antique French marble top stone base console serving table. This dramatic antique French shaped marble top from France circa 1860 is now mounted on a pair of stone lion monopodia pedestals from France circa 1920 having excellent cast details. This architectural garden table resided in the potting area of a grand glass house where it saw daily duty as a platform to arrange flowers for use inside the main house. Please look at the wonderful patina of the stone supports accrued by years of being in a moist hothouse environment. The use of the ferocious lion standing upon a single paw comes from the ancient world and was a favourite motif used by persons of learning and wealth for centuries. By moving this piece indoors the unexpected juxtaposition of materials creates an intriguing effect. The table may also be used under a covered loggia or terrace.
