Side cabinet / salon table in marquetry, gilt bronze, and marble. French, transition-style, circa 1900.

The cabinet houses a small drawer above a hinged door that opens to a marble lined interior (originally a bedside cabinet). It is raised on curved legs, and topped with a thick beveled piece of variegated white, gray, and brown marble.

The cabinet highlights fine marquetry on all 4 sides: the sides and back display geometric patterns, while the front displays Neo-classical imagery including a central cartouche containing a sunburst, surmounted by a garland swag, against a geometric pattern punctuated with stylized flowers.

The piece is decorated in beautifully ornate and detailed bronze mounts all over.

A charming piece – of good quality and in good condition. The marble on the interior of the cabinet shows some staining (not visible to the exterior - see pictures).
