An unusual mid-19th century Anglo-Indian black ebonised side cabinet or console table. Key features:

Material: The cabinet is made of black ebonised wood, probably Sheesham or similar, which has been stained to give it a black finish.

Marble Top: The cabinet has a veined marble top that resembles Portoro marble. Portoro marble is a type of black marble with striking gold or white veins running through it.

Frieze: The cabinet has a blank frieze, which is the horizontal band below the marble top. It is adorned with floral detailing in the center and on the extremes, adding decorative elements to the piece.

Supports: The cabinet is supported on carved fluted volute scrolls with acanthus ornamentation. Volute scrolls are spiral or scroll-like forms often found in classical architecture and design, while acanthus ornamentation refers to the use of stylized acanthus leaves, a common motif in classical design.

Plinth and Feet: The cabinet is elevated on a raised plinth, a low platform or base. The plinth features overscale volute scroll feet, the feet are large and shaped like spiral scrolls. This adds to the decorative and ornate nature of the piece.

6. Cupboard Doors: The cabinet has cupboard doors that open to reveal double shelves inside. Providing storage space for various items.

– Height: 89 cm (35 inches)
– Width: 121.5 cm (48 inches)
– Depth: 51 cm (20 inches)

Overall, this piece is a unique example of Anglo-Indian furniture from the mid-19th century, showcasing a blend of British and Indian design influences. The black ebonised finish, veined marble top, floral frieze, and intricate carved details contribute to its aesthetic appeal.
