A pair of neoclassical style marble-top console tables attributed to Maison Jansen as seen on page 201, of the Jansen Furniture book by James Archer Abbott. This incredible stunning pair of Swedish paint decorated consoles are the same style consoles that sold in Christies NYC, 2005, where one console was purchased for $25,000.
This piece is accompanied by a letter of Authentication from James Archer Abbott, Author of ‘Designing Camelot: The Kennedy White House Restoration’ as well as both Jansen Furniture books.
James Archer Abbott serves as director and curator of Johns Hopkins university’s evergreen museum and library, one of two museums owned and operated by the university. Mr. Abbott’s publications include the following exhibition catalogs: visions of Washington Irving: selections from the collections of Historic Hudson valley (co-author, 1991); classical to 19th century America: The Influence of Berry Tracy on the Historical interior (1994); and A Frenchman in Camelot: The Decoration of the Kennedy White House by Ste´phane Boudin (1995). Mr. Abbott co-wrote with Elaine Rice a further exploration of the Kennedy White House decor, entitled Designing Camelot: The Kennedy White House Restoration, which was published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1998. In 2006, he completed a well-received history of the international design firm Jansen (1880-1989), entitled “JANSEN,” and published by Acanthus Press, LLC. This was followed by a companion volume, “Jansen Furniture,” published in spring 2007.
