Regency Pedestal Table

Regency pedestal table.

dimensions : 67 H x 31,5 W x 29 D cm.

Provenance of the model : collection of a Ghent antique dealer, Belgium.

Small Regency pedestal table with three legs ending in shoes. The special shape harks back to the animal style of Ancient Greek mythology, portraying fauns or the Galatea goat. The symmetrical decoration is inspired by figures in vogue in the first thirty years or so of the 18th century. It is used a great deal when on its creation this light piece of furniture was intended to carry candelabra and girandoles.

Pedestal table : in the beginning the pedestal table was shaped as a Moor, a slave carrying a tray. The central trunk was then embellished with a tripod and various models of it were available. The candelabra may also be confused with pedestal tables depending on the artists : “a sort of small pedestal table with a high trunk on which is placed a candlestick, a girandole and candles” (Dictionary of the Académie Française of 1696).
