Centre table, (guéridon)
Circular centre table, or guéridon, with a top of inlaid marble on a giltwood base. The marbles have been identified. The tripod base of three legs was already a popular table deign by the 18th century. It derived from models in antiquity. This example shows the development of the First Empire style, with a geometric, triangular base, and a lion's paw supported each leg. By around 1810 this tripod design had been modified and developed into a single pillar supporting the table top.
