Description

This 19th century Louis XVI style dining table features an oval top above a brass-lined frieze, and is supported on square tapering legs hung with mounted ormolu decorations. The table also includes three later and unpolished leaves which slot into the middle, enabling the table to extend to different lengths.

It was crafted by distinguished French furniture manufacturer Mercier Frères, established in 1828 by Claude Mercier. It was recognised as one of the leading Parisian firms of the 19th century, participating in most of the major International Exhibitions of the fin-de-siècle.

This dining table can be paired with a set of ten matching dining chairs, available here.

Dimensions: Height 73cm, width closed 168cm, width open 330cm, depth 139cm.
