This pair of half-moon consoles forming a round table in walnut wood and mounted in dovetail fashion was made in the first half of the 17th century in Lombardy, northern Italy. Proving that the need for practical and useful furniture is not specific to our time, this dual-purpose model was very successful in the 17th century.
The refinement of the ensemble is due in part to the chiselling work on the jambs. These are connected by an elegant spacer system to increase comfort when sitting. With a warm and luminous patina, this round table is in perfect condition and has not been restored.
