This Renaissance table, Haute Epoque Androuet du Cerceau Henri II Henri IV furniture with balusters has a decorated tray with border of quill-feathers in repetition. It rests on a base in H supported by seven fluted columns connected by roundhead arches. Both impressive feet, patterned with spiral scrolls and acanthus leaves are joined by a cross beam. The finish of the tray is provided by a string-course with feathers and palmettes alternating with tops in pendant in corners. This table from the 16th century, inspired by Androuet du Cerceau's work, is characteristic of the second French Renaissance. It could be dated from 1560 to 1580.
Very good condition. Lack in a corner of the table top. Usual restorations of the feet
