Gilbert Poillerat (1902-1988)

Rare and important console
Circa 1938

The rectangular marble surface with beige veining Sarrancolin breccia rests on a cast iron base. Each of the four exquisitely worked legs has a quadrilobe motif at the top and an inversed corolla at the base. They are linked by an X-shaped brace in the form of a cleverly knotted rope decorated with acorns. This base is a prime example of Poillerat’s use of metal. The cord is the central decorative element of the console, evoking the strength of the piece’s structure and design.
