Louis Majorelle Rosso Verona Marble Top Guéridon Table

$19,500

This French Art Nouveau marble top triangular guéridon table by Louis Majorelle features legs, an apron, and cross piece that are carved with flowers, vines, and leaves. Fashioned of marble and carved or molded mahogany wood, the table's sophisticated and dynamic design is enhanced by the sinuous curves of its chevrefeuille, or honeysuckle, floral motif. In this small display table, Majorelle breathes new life into old tradition, with a tabletop that is inset with the highest grade Rosso Verona marble, with white veined orange nodules set within a red matrix.

The guéridon's top, apron, legs and stretcher are carved with chevrefeuille, or honeysuckle, motif. Honeysuckles historically refers to Marie de France's 13th-century "Chevrefeuille," a French variation of the "Tristan and Isolde" legend. Louis Majorelle had previously created furniture based on the flowers found in these fables, but none so magnificently convey the essence of the story as this particular guéridon.
