Jules Leleu

Coffee Table with Tripodal Base

France, circa 1930s



Medium: Blond mahogany with gilt-bronze sabots and verre eglomisee top

Dimensions: 20.5 in high x 35.5 in diameter

This extraordinary table, designed by one of the early twentieth century's greatest designers, represents the consummation of French Art Deco elegance. The table's circular top--a spectacular work of verre eglomise set like a jewel in a frame of gilt bronze--rests upon a solid cylindrical support split at its base into three gently sloping legs.
