Although it does not bear Lannuier’s label, this table is nearly identical to six pairs of tables and three single tables that do. It demonstrates Lannuier’s skillful combination of French influences. The gilded, winged caryatid and the hocked animal legs are reminiscent of illustrations in Pierre de La Mésangère’s "Collection de meubles et objets de gout" (1802–35), which includes motifs often found in Lannuier’s work.
Inscription: inscribed in chalk on the underside of the well: MS / RS / each; 1363
