I think we all know by know that I have an affinity for drapery or tassels especially when rendered in materials other than fabric or thread. These 18th century French consoles are particularly beautiful and unusual. 

Future husbands please note: if I don't already own these, don't waste your time on a ring. 


  1. JWC, I am mad for these wall-mount brackets as well. I wonder what the mirror replaced as the original tops? Marble would be my first guess, though that would be heavy. I am also guessing that they were not intended to be installed at table top height, though they could of course. Perhaps they were to display some splendid porcelain? In any case, I agree that they are superb.
