Middle table Louis XIV inlaid, with native woods such as, burl and magnifying glass of walnut and ash, olive veneer, sycamore, plum and boxwood on poplar soul and solid walnut frames. It has a four-legged baluster base with double openwork twisted settlements in partially blackened natural walnut wood posing on ball feet. Each of them joined at the bottom by a flat spacer formed of two braces joined by a cross of long raised in the middle part of a sphere as flat and fit in the upper part in the connection of the belt. This one with flat faces opens in front by a drawer of long, centered of a button of draw in turned walnut wood. A rectangle quadrilateral square at right angles caps the set. The plateau, the belt and the transom receive a rich decoration of symmetrical geometric marking of sets of strips, interlacing and multi-lobed cartridges. The plate is counterbored with bramble and walnut magnifying glass and is marqueted in the middle part of an oval cartouche encircled with fine boxwood nets; in the center of which runs a stag with ramified branches of ash. On the outskirts of which, an elegant decor with an ornamental design where arabesques and polylobed reserves with sharp angles intertwine before being united by each of its cardinal points to a quadrilateral section, unifying the painting. Section itself surrounded by an ultimate succession of oblong cartridges with sharp angles united to each other by nematoid segments. This succession of cartridges encompasses each of the angles in order to simulate stylized hearts. Each of them is enriched with an Italian-style inlaid marquetry of foliage scrolls punctuated with flowers and flowers in sycamore forming spandrels. The whole constituting an opulent symmetrical geometrical design, traversed by a single continuous line by a plum ribbon embellished with fine threads of boxwood giving it this balance so significant and so dear to Louis XIV's decorative arts. Finally the edge of the beaker of corbin is as to it traversed interlocking chevrons alternating walnut and sycamore framing the whole. The sides of the belt are each adorned with double geometric reserves lined with boxwood nets. In front of which slides under the tray a large drawer of long inlaid in similar ways but centered a pull button.
