Important hunting table in solid walnut wood.
It rests on four arched legs which are terminated by deer hooves in the lower part and by an acanthus in the upper part.
The front crosspiece is curved like a crossbow, it is scalloped and lined with acanthus clasps.
The central part presents an important finely carved asymmetrical rocaille.
A stylized cord runs along the legs and crosspieces.
Original top in black, white veined marble from La Mure (Isère).
Perfect state of conservation.
Work by Pierre Hache, Grenoble around 1730-1740.
Height: 92 cm; Width: 195 cm; Depth: 96 cm
Our table is published on page 394 of Pierre Rouge's book: "The Genius of the Axes."
Our opinion :
The monumental table that we are presenting is part of a small corpus made up of a small handful of hunting tables made by Pierre Hache for Provençal castles at the start of the reign of Louis XV.
It is one of the largest known examples, with another table kept at the Château de Grignan in Drôme.
The thickness of the wood used, the dimensions and the exceptional quality of the sculpture mark one of the finest creations in natural wood from the Hache family.
