Lot Essay

The apron of this unusual table is carved with the arms of the de Baillet-Latour family. The de Baillet-Latour's were a prominent aristocratic family whose main seat from 1662 was the Château Latour at Virton, Belgium. The present lot was probably commissioned by either Ernest Christophe Baillet-Latour (1668-1732), president of the Great Council of Mechelen in 1716 or Francois-Xavier-Joseph Baillet-Latour (d. 1748), who was resident in the Duchy of Gelre. The family line became extinct in 1980.
