Learn about Console Table

Similar in design and function to a pier table, a console table is a side table supported on legs or scrolled brackets at the front, with the back secured to the wall. Usually surmounted with a tall mirror, they were made to stand in the piers or divisions between the windows of a drawing room. Later Victorian versions were often freestanding on a platform base, with straight rear supports to enable the table to stand flat against the wall. Console tables usually had marble tops. Potential purchasers should be aware that many converted marble top washstands are now marketed as 'console tables' or hall tables.
