Catalogue Note

Comparative Literature:
Denise Ledoux-Lebard, Le Grand Trianon , Meubles et Objets d'Art, Vol. I, Paris, 1975, p. 86.
Maurice Segoura, Weisweiler, Paris, 1983, p. 95, illustrates a guéridon table with very similar supports to those on the offered pair.

Also see the guéridon table stamped Weisweiler with bronzes by Feuchère conceived in a similar vein to those on the offered tables now in the salon de musique or salon des officiers, at the Grand Trianon, illustrated by Ledoux-Lebard, op. cit., reproduced here in fig.1.

Furthermore Jean-Pierre Samoyault, Musée National du Château  de Fontainebleau, Meubles entrés sous le Premier Empire, Paris, 2004, p. 23, fig. 4, illustrates a console with similar supports, one of two pairs, delivered in 1802, by Lingnereux for le grand salon of Josephine at Saint-Cloud, now at the Grand Trianon, Versailles, reproduced here in fig. 2.

This pair of demi-lune console tables present an interesting combination of tops which were formerly  part of a surtout de table and supports usually found on console tables such as the one illustrated by Samoyault op. cit.  p. 23. The quality of the frieze around the tops suggests a bronzier of the calibre of Feuchère.

Finally, a  console table attributed to Weisweiler supplied by Lignereux sold as lot 308, from the Property of the 11th Earl of Elgin and 15th Earl of Kincardine, K.T.,  on 12th June 1992.
