Lot Essay

This table is derived from an important group of flower-filled trellis-marquetry tables en chiffonniere by the renowned ébéniste Roger Vandercruse, dit Lacroix (RVLC). Aside from the form and the trellis marquetry the central motif is also a distinctive RVLC device, see N. Gasc & G Mabille, The Nissim de Camondo Museum, Paris, 1991, pp.29 & 51.
