Special notice

On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial interest in the outcome of the sale of certain lots consigned for sale. This will usually be where it has guaranteed to the Seller that whatever the outcome of the auction, the Seller will receive a minimum sale price for the work. This is known as a minimum price guarantee. This is such a lot.

Lot Essay

This work has been authenticated by the estate of Paul Dupré-Lafon.

Dupré-Lafon created a number of these tables for the Villa Les Myrtes in the south of France. Originally intended for outdoor use, the comblanchien stone and wrought-iron were materials selected to withstand the elements.

cf. T. Couvrat Desvergnes, Paul Dupré-Lafon décorateur des millionnaires, Paris, 1990, pp. 194-195 for period photographs of the Villa Les Myrtles in the south of France.
