In reality used as occasional rather than gaming tables for the vast majority of the time, even in the 18th Century, tric-trac tables in lacquer are exceptionally rare. It is important to note, therefore, that in the hôtel of the duc de Luynes in 1793 are succinctly described:-
110 deux trictrac de laque à dessus de maroquin vert sur quatre pieds à gaines garnies de bronze doré.
An identical table, presumably the pair (as with the duc de Luynes tables), formerly in the collection of Consuelo Vanderbilt, later Mrs. Jacques Balsan, was given to the château de Versailles by Mr Robert and Mrs Marguerite Kahn-Sriber, 1964. Now in the comtesse de Barry's salon de Compagnie, it is illustrated and discussed in P. Arizzoli-Clémentel, Versailles Furniture of the Royal Palace 17th and 18th Century, Dijon, 2002, no.30, p.101.
