The dining room was established in 1735, when Louis XV created a summer and a winter dining room in Versailles. The fixed dining table succeeded it in the last third of the 18th century. The dressers gradually disappeared and were replaced by the decoration of the table. This included the porcelain and assorted table services, the ephemeral table settings made of "sablés" and sugar figures, and the goldsmith's and silversmith's work. In this decor, the French service unfolds its innumerable dishes of which each one consumes only what it wishes
