Around the 17thcentury in Italy, a console table was a major manifestation of the culture of furniture made for the purpose of display. Many examples of the period were carved and were, in fact, some of the finest pieces of sculpture as much as furniture. An opulent group of consoles was made in 167578 for the Palazzo Colonna in Rome where the supports for the tops were commonly carved as human figures, eagles, tumbling putti (cupids), luxuriant foliage, and dolphins, and they often were gilded.
