Everywhere motifs of flowered baskets, mascarons, foliage scrolls, guilloché moldings. Rear base with three belt drawers, and six twisted column legs. A composite model is visible in the Ecouen museum (Sommerard funds), and is not geographically located: the label indicates “France? or Netherlands?” Good state of conservation
