Rare 'Nougat' Table from a French Patisserie

A rare and desirable French 'Nougat' display table with its original detachable red marble top and 'Art Nouveau' style carved wooden base. This beautiful table, which was traditionally used for displaying nougat in its various forms, came from an old Candy/Chocolate & Patisserie Shop in southern France. In its old faded green and yellow paint, the base has a double stretcher joining the two 'lyre' themed ends and has symbolically carved 'cartouches' with shamrocks at either end and oak leaves on both front and reverse sides. The detachable top is a gorgeously coloured old piece of marble with hues of red and orange fading to beige and white. As old shop and café tables go, this is a highly unusual and beautiful one and I'm not in a hurry to get rid of it ! (Presently being used in the kitchen in my London flat).

Measures 42 inches long x 25 deep x 30 high. Made in France circa 1885-1910 (the Art Nouveau period). In good condition with some wear..

A pioneer in decorative antiques, Malcolm has been in the business since giving up law studies and given his passion for French and Mediterranean art and traditions, it seems apt that his London shop/warehouse nestles beside the Eurostar Rail Terminus at London's St Pancras Station.

One of the foremost dealers in naive objects, folk art, fairground carvings and the visually decorative, he is driven by his love for objects that fire the imagination. Renowned for unearthing pieces with a rare magical quality, he sources the original, the one-off and the inspiration for regular long time clients and dealers or for newer contacts seeking either something beautiful for their homes or just the making of a good investment.

A visit to Relic Antiques 'Antique Warehouse' is guaranteed to open a door to a star quality stock. Expect the unexpected, from simple craftsman made pieces, or the flippantly amusing like period shop signs and fairground art, to the more sophisticated such as charming paintings and unusual examples of country furniture.

When in London visit the 'Antique Warehouse' which is located at 133-135 Pancras Road, London NW1 1UN and though normally open late afternoons only (3pm-6pm) on weekdays and 1pm-5pm on Saturdays, it is always worth calling ahead to make sure we are open. Also by appointment. Telephone +44 (0)7831 785059.
