Unique Treasures From The U. 18th Century Country French Leather Top Card / Game Table w/ Four Drawers.
This 18th century gaming table incorporates the graceful Louis XV cabriole leg ending in a hoofed foot. The table features a square top with rounded corners and scalloped apron; a single drawer is convenient to each of the four sides.The salmon colored gold embossed leather top is, of course, a recent addition. We believe this table to be made of a fruit wood such as cherry or pear: although the finish is a warm walnut, it is not as brittle as walnut. The construction of this table is correct in every way for the period. In the latter half of the 1700's the court of Louis XVI introduced a new style of furniture, generally considered to be, more "formal" than his predecessor Louis XV. Away from the Parisian monarchy, in the smaller cities or towns, fashions were slow to change. Our late 18th century game / card table is such a piece; probably created in the south of France the style is known as "Country French" or "French Provincial". Unfortunately since provincial furniture was rarely given as much historical importance as the leading city styles, it is rare to find well preserved "period" pieces today. Age appropriate wear, some later restoration. Item location: San Diego, California, United States.
