Dimensions: 32 inches (81 cm) high, 53 inches (135 cm) wide, 26 inches (66 cm) deep. This table design develops from the Louis XIV Roman fashion, suitable for a marble sideboard sideboard, and its frame is decorated with a diamond-shaped lattice mosaic, reminiscent of the chest of the Roman temple of Venus.

Winged dragons, akin to those on the litter of this console, appear on the crest of the dressing table from the corner cabinet of the Hotel Peyrenc de Moras. Built in 1723 by the architect Gabriel with wood panels carved by Jules Degullon and André Legoupil in 1724, these wall panels are now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, a gift from J. Pierpont Morgan.
