Louis Majorelle Two-Tiered Fruitwood Pedestal


This two-tiered, fruitwood pedestal by Louis Majorelle features an exciting contrast of forms, with a strict, triangular upper tier featuring an elegant inward curving lip, contrasting cheerfully with the joyful, entirely flat and rounded clover-shaped second tier. The composition is structured around three sinuous, undulating legs that terminate in triangular openwork elements.

Item #: F-11597 
Artist: Louis Majorelle 
Circa: 1900 
Dimensions: 47" height, 18.5" width, 15" depth 
Materials: Fruitwood 
Literature: A similar pedestal, in the form of a table, is pictured in Majorelle - Nancy: décorations d'intérieurs: meubles, tentures, bronzes, ferronneries (the 1906 Majorelle catalogue)

A true study in contrasting lines and forms, the upper segment of the pedestal features "legs" or supports that bow inward, creating an elegant waist for the piece, while the bottom section is upheld by two sets of interlocking legs that bow noticeably outward.
