A late Louis XV solid mahogany games table by Denis Louis Ancellet, by 1770

A late Louis XV solid mahogany games table signed D.L.ANCELET on the game board
The rectangular top with moulded edge is lined with a gilt-tooled blue leather writing surface and a blue woollen fabric to the reverse. It is enclosing an ivory, ebony, and boxwood compartment, fitted for backgammon, on four fluted tapering legs. With fifteen boxwood counters, fifteen ebonised boxwood counters.

The particular shape of these fluted legs, flaring upwards like a trumpet, is characteristic of the 1770's early French neoclassicism.
This type of legs can been seen, in a richer and more complex version, on the so-called table of the Muses, delivered by Riesener in 1771 to Pierre-Elizabeth de Fontanieu, intendant general of the Garde Meuble de la Couronne.
Splayed legs supporting square mass are also found in the base of the desk which appears on the print engraved by Fessard in 1763 of the portrait of the Duke of Choiseul after Van Loo.

Denis Louis Ancellet master in 1766.
Paris circa 1770
