A Wonderful Late 19th Century Louis XVI Style Gilt Bronze Mounted Center Table

The oval marble top above a single bronze mounted frieze drawer designed with leaves and berries, on fluted tapering legs

Designed after the famous 18th century model by Jean-Francois Leleu

Jean-François Leleu was one of the favoured assistants in the workshop of the great ébéniste Jean-François Oeben (1721-1763). After the early death of his master, he hoped to be entrusted with the running of the workshop, but was superseded by Jean-Henri Riesener (1734-1806), another of Oeben's assistants. Riesener married Oeben's widow and went on to become the court ébéniste of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette. Leleu left the workshop, became maître-ébéniste in 1764 and set up on his own. He attracted a grand and fastidious clientele, notably the Duc d'Uzés, Baron d'Ivry, and Ange-Laurent Lalive de Jully.
