This table appears as a perfect success of the port furniture and is distinguished by its refined sobriety highlighting the brilliance of a beautiful mahogany from Cuba with a particularly fine grain grain and a "cherry red" patina.
Typical of certain models of pure Louis XV spirit adorning the lounges of Bordeaux mansions, it is distinguished by an elegant and light line, with relatively narrow belts and curves of the foot placed very high, which gives it a very elegant look. graceful.
It is topped with a thick scalloped top, made of a single mahogany plank, profiled with a double molding (large quarter-round underlined by a listel) originally mounted only with offset pegs on the crossbars (also pegged on the platform thereafter). It opens on the front with a drawer fitted with a brass button decorated with a rosette. Occupying the entire front cross member and sliding directly under the top, it is therefore held by a concealed reinforcement bar (replaced) pegged to the upright, and finally it is bordered by a flexible and powerful fretwork underlined by a molding that is continues on the base. The feet, which still have their original caps, are punctuated with volutes of a very beautiful finish and are underlined by a double molding in relief (leave - net - quarter-round) which continues on the four belts. .
Beautiful original condition and very beautiful patina.
Some very light restorations of use.
Bordeaux - mid-18th century.
We are dealing here with the real cabaret table, a refined piece of furniture born out of the fashion for new lounge drinks, tea, chocolate and then coffee, a table whose massive top is hollowed out over its entire surface to form a sort of bowl. slightly rounded rim designed to hold cups and glasses.
These precious little tables were very popular in the large Atlantic ports which were the importers of these drinks from the Americas and the East, they were in great vogue in the châteaux of the nobility and the mansions of rich merchants, before becoming fashionable in Paris where the greatest cabinetmakers (Carlin - RVLC ...) were created extraordinary small cabarets in the most luxurious materials such as oriental and European lacquers or porcelain from Vincennes - Sèvres.
