Möbel·Europäisches Kunsthandwerk·Gemälde

A Pair of Viennese Giltwood Console Tables

Vienna, ca. 1720
in the style of Lucas von Hildebrandt

84.5 x 152 x 77.2 cm

Tops of ‘Losensteiner Kalkmarmor’

 

Inventory labels with the Harrach coat of arms and ink marks ‘35’ and ‘36’ at the inner side of the frames.

A very similar console table with almost identical c-scroll legs and stretcher is in the Belvedere, Vienna. A console table with almost equal putti-decoration can be found in the Liechtenstein Castle Feldsberg.

Provenance:
Property of Counts of Harrach, most probably made for Aloys Thomas Raimundi Count of Harrach (1669 - 1742) for the Palais Harrach, Vienna.

Literature:

  • Kreisel / Himmelheber, Die Kunst des deutschen Möbels, vol. II, fig. 390
  • H. Schmitz, Deutsche Möbel des Barock und Rokoko, vol. II, 1924, p. 102
  • J. Folnesics, Alte Innenräume österreichischer Schlösser, Paläste und Wohnräume,
    plate 98
