This is a fine and visually interesting antique game table. With an understated glow throughout, the table has wonderful play between the gold gilt bronze mounts, the shiny brass work and the nearly black surfaces. The top has a scalloped and curving rim, flowing symmetrically in the Louis XV spirit. A brass half-tubing wraps the rim, brass inlay highlighting the legs, apron and top. The table rests over lightly cabriole legs, each terminating in a gilt bronze or metal sabot. The frame construction is incredibly unique, allowing the rear legs to pull out in a drawer fashion, smoothly creating a level plane for the top to flip back over, revealing a large game table surface. The tooled black leather surface appears to be original, with gilt highlights along the edges. A large storage space is hidden within the table, revealed only when the back legs are pulled out. Oak secondaries make up the underside of the frame.

This is such an incredible piece, being quietly restrained in the typical décor of a Louis XV piece, with clean elegance crafted into every portion of the design. A great deal of thought went into the expanding leg design, which would typically be gate leg in a lesser form. By using this construction design, the table is just as stable in opened position as it is when closed against the wall. This allows it to be a fully functional games table, rather than primarily a decorative piece, remarkably showing fine finished inlaid surfaces even when it is opened as a game table.

This is an outstanding find for any home with a French taste or flare for the Louis XV design.
