A fine early 19th century French Empire mahogany Gueridon with a circular dished ‘Gris St.Anne’ marble top.

French Empire Period, Circa 1810.

The choice cut of “Gris Saint Anne’ marble set upon a mahogany veneered and moulded edge circular frieze, above a pyramid shaped base having concave sides supported by three finely carved swans. The whole being raised on a mahogany plinth with turned feet and recessed castors.

This example is a classic design of the Empire period having the carved swans which is found in the design of Empire furniture. It relates to the story of Leda and the Swan in Greek mythology where the God Zeus transformed into a swan in order to seduce Leda so to bear his children.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
