Catalogue Note

Few circular tables of the Louis XIV period are recorded; there is one in the Louvre which had been owned by Fouquet at the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte.  It is considerably larger than the present table with a diameter of approximately 57 inches; its porphyry top is raised on four giltwood supports carved with infant torsos continuing to leafy paw feet.  The supports on the present table are similar in overall design to the supports on a pair of consoles said to be after a design attributable to Daniel Marot, on the Paris art market.  Like the supports on the present table, the upper part is curved and surmounted by a mask (with helmet), the lower part of square section is similarly carved and raised on carved bun feet; the foliate carving on the frieze of these tables is also comparable with the carving on the present table.
