An Ebony Boulle Table
The form is very much like a demi-lune with a curved leg supporting the front. We usually see this table in formal hallways and it often has a mirror above it which can hang on the wall. This particular one is an early ebony Boulle piece with great gold transfer work. The top of the table has very intricate designs and the back of the piece behind the leg shows exotic animals surrounded by very fancy scroll work. The piece is elegant and could be used with the Ebony Boulle mirror listed on today’s items.
