Pair of Italian Empire Giltwood Center Tables, early 19th century, each with a later octagonal top raised on a tiered standard, the upper tier composed of an inverted Corinthian capital and the lower tier composed of three sphinx supports surrounding a central bulbous standard, raised on a concave tripartite base on block feet, h. 33", dia. 26".


The bases are completely intact with no losses to the structure of the sphinxes. At one point, they appear to have been over-painted with pale gray, and some of that still remains in small areas. The gold leaf and coating of plaster beneath it has been rubbed and worn to varying degrees. The bases are laminated and parts of the structure are now visible due to wood shrinkage.
