An Empire centre table, Joseph Chapuis (1765-1864)
The circular grey marble top above a plain mahogany frieze with three squares with brass rosettes above three scrolled legs are made of bent and veneered wood decorated with gilt bronze ram's heads. This was a revolutionary technique at the time and Chapuis was one of the very first makers to use it (and probably invented it). The legs are joined with a tripartite stretcher. Stamped three times with: ‘Chapuis’. Joseph Chapuis was a very important Maître Ebèniste furniture maker in Brussels. He started his workshop in 1798 in Rue de Borgval in Brussels.
Ca. 1810, Brussels, the Netherlands.
