French Art Nouveau Pedestal by Louis Majorelle

About

A French Art Nouveau walnut 3 tiered pedestal by Louis Majorelle, featuring a rotating tray on the top. Leaves and berries adorn the upper portion of the legs. The gently curving legs are also deeply carved, circa 1900. Pictured in, Louis Majorelle, Master of Art Nouveau Design, by Alastair Duncan, 1991, p. 202. Firmly rooted in the craft of woodwork and furniture-making, Louis Majorelle’s furniture subtly recalled the splendors of furniture from the 1700s. Majorelle often ornamented his pieces with gracefully sculpted organic and sumptuous natural forms, like the grape bunches featured here. Using a new vocabulary of natural forms and flowing lines of Art Nouveau, Majorelle's furniture merged old and new in a tantalizing way. The sinuous natural forms of his works, like those sumptuous accents, were inspired by the C-scrolls of the Louis XV era. In an age when France was still humiliated by the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, and when luxury production in other countries was threatening the cultural hegemony the French saw as their birthright, Majorelle's ability to suggest the nation's glory days was paramount.
