square shaped, each side with fan-shaped marqueterie within a meander border, the bevelled edges are placed on Corinthian half-columns of ebony with an intarsia of "trompe l'oeil" cannalures of boxwood, on four cabriole feet, later copper bucket.

Matthijs Horrix was born in Lobberich near Krefeld, Germany. The quality of the contstruction of the massive ebony half columns with intarsia of boxwood 'trompe l'oeil' flutes, the distinctive Corinthian capitals and the refinement of the marquetery and the play of the different Woods inditcate to Matthijs Horrix. He probably trained in Paris and came to The Hague around 1760, becoming a master cabinetmaker in 1764. His skill in making furniture in the French style resulted in him being entrusted with the most important furniture commissions from the Court on the occasion of the marriage in October 1767 of Prince William V of Orange Nassau and Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia. Horrix's rapid success was due to his ability to produce furniture in the latest Paris style. Horrix's workshop was by far the largest in The Hague at that thime.
