The use of bois de bout floral marquetry tendrils is traditionally associated with the oeuvre of Bernard II van Risenburgh (BVRB), who was elected matre in 1730. It was, however, a decorative motif employed by numerous of his confrres, including Roger van der Cruse, dit Lacroix, Joseph Baumhauer, Jacques Dubois and Jacques-Philippe Carel, so a conclusive attribution is often elusive. Interestingly, of these, both Dubois and Carel are known to have subcontracted work to their contemporaries in their capacity as marchands.
A table, also unstamped, of closely related profile although slightly larger and with a stylised cartouche to the top, was sold from the collection of the Barons Nathaniel and Albert von Rothschild, Christie's London, 8 July 1999,lot 202. Interestingly this also displayed the same model of angle-mount - although those on the present table are probably later replacements.
