An empire mahogany gueridon, profusely mounted with gilt bronze. The frieze has a brass stringing line along the bottom edge. The table stands on a hexagonal baluster stem supported on a scrolled tripod plinth and terminating in bronze claw feet. Attributed to JJ Werner.

Jean-Jacques Werner (b. 1791 – d. 1849) was born into a wealthy family in the Canton de Vaud region of Switzerland, later assuming French nationality in 1826 he became one of the most illustrious cabinet-makers of the Restauration period. He was established as an ébéniste in 1812 and won great acclaim at the Paris Expositions of 1819 and 1823 for his innovative use of combining rare woods with intricate marquetry. He also frequently embellished his pieces with beautifully executed gilt bronze mounts, particularly anthemion motif which typified the period. Werner enjoyed considerable success, earning the patronage of the Bonaparte family, the Duchesse de Berry and the King of Bavaria among other notable patrons; examples of his work can be seen at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Grand Trianon at Versailles.
