Catalogue Note

Comparative Literature:
Le Mobilier du Général Moreau, cat. expostion Musée national du château de Fontainebleau, 16th June -14th September 1992, p. 40-41, no. 3.

This console is identical, with its leaf cast scrolled front supports terminating in griffin feet, apart from the mounts on the frieze, to a console table illustrated above, formerly in the music room of General Moreau in his residence in rue d' Anjou, Paris, (now in the château de Fontainebleau), reproduced here in fig. 1. The majority of Moreau's furniture was by Jacob Frères with the collaboration of Percier and Fontaine and the furnishing of his residence was a massive enterprise commenced in 1801. The building was seized by Napoleon in 1805.
