The design and lattice-parquetry decoration of this table derive from tables en chiffonniere, incorporating Sevres plateaux Courteille, commissioned by the marchand mercier Simon Philippe Poirier from the renowned Parisian ébénistes Roger Vandercruise and Bernard van Risamburgh around 1760. The form of the mounts employed to secure the top here have been reinterpreted from that original design for use with a parquetry top. A related lattice parquetry ‘R.V.L.C.’ table, is illustrated: Exhibition Catalogue 18th Century, Birth of Design, Versailles, Château de Versailles, 2014, pp. 170-171, no. 47; whilst a further closely related lacquered example is illustrated: N. Gasc & G Mabille, The Nissim de Camondo Museum, Paris, 1991, p.29..
