Small table, neoclassical stamped Hache son in Grenoble inlaid with dexterity of beech, walnut, and sycamore wire and burr, all treated in natural or tinted on cherry wood frame, geometric cartridges of medallions rhombus and round decorated with ebony fillets to the Greek unhooking spiked with disks on all its visible faces, including the tray. This small soft ticket table of rectangular plan, in front opens by two drawers of width surmounted by a sliding shelf sheathed in morocco, as well as another one on the right, all and all with alpine pine veneer. This last one, compartmentalized with three compartments for the inkwell, the powder case and the sponge box, reminds its double function: writing table and chiffonier. The front ones are provided with lock entries while the side and the shelf with a draw lens, all in gilt bronze. The visible crosspieces without ornaments contribute to the decorative geometry while lightening it. The ensemble rests on a square section base with four sides, each with a deep central groove. The stamp of Jean-François Hache : Haches fils à Grenoble is stamped on the edge of the side drawer. It should be noted that a trace of a label is present under the drawer. In the 1770s, Jean-François Hache introduced the neoclassical style in Dauphiné. His ornaments borrowed from geometry: cubes, rectangles, circles and, above all, inimitable ovals inlaid with stained sycamore burls or moiré beech. Progressively during this decade, anxious to follow the new taste, he will make his production evolve from the fluid and curved forms of the Louis XV style to the sobriety of the lines of the neoclassicism of the Louis XVI style; our charming little table is the perfect example. Anxious to preserve the integrity of this table, old locks and key have been preserved but unfortunately they are defective.
