Catalogue Note

The ornamentation and refinement of the carving details on this console table point to the work of the French designer and woodcarver Nicolas Pineau (French, 1684-1754), known to have been engaged to work for Peter the Great in Russia and to have later worked in Paris alongside prominent architects such as Jean-François Blondel and Jules-Hardouin Mansart de Sagonne. Held in the collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (inv. no. 4505 C), a proposition drawing for clients displays many similarities with the present console table.
