Object Description

Attributed to Wright & Mansfield

Constructed using very fine matched mahogany veneers and gilded bronze; of circular form, having four pairs of cluster faux bamboo column legs, with ringed capitols over, and tapering toupie castor shod feet dressed with a conjoining looped ‘X’ form stretcher, emanating from a central circular boss supporting the bronze edged platform with radially laid veneers to the top.
Circa 1875

The design for this table with its ‘bamboo’ double colonettes is undoubtedly the celebrated table given by Madame du Barry (1743-1793) to the duc de Brissac. Delivered by Lignereux and Daguerre, it exemplified the height of taste at the end of the eighteenth century, which once again gained popularity at the end of the nineteenth century.
