Aussergewöhnlicher Beistell-Tisch, sog. „Vide-Poche“ nach einem Modell von J.H. Riesener


A magnificent 19th century marquetry oval side table based on a design by J. H. Riesener (1734-1806.) A remarkably similar oval side table was only recently pictured at Buckingham Palace when Sir James Dyson, British entrepreneur was awarded the Insignia of the member of Merit by Queen Elizabeth II in her private audience room at Buckinham palace (see photo/telegraph.co.uk.) An oval table with lyre shaped sides, veneered in maple, mahogany, tulipwood and other woods and with bronze mounts. The top and bottom stretcher display trellis marquetry with a gallery veneered in fishtail parquetry, the frieze panel with drawer inlaid with Vitruvian scroll marquetry, the lyre-shaped sides with fine stringing. J.H. Rieseners designs have been keenly reproduced during the late 19th century. A leading ebenist of the late 19th century, G. Durand (1839 - 1920), is known for his work based on Riesener designs. An oval side table with the same lyre shaped sides, gallery and bottom stretcher, veneered in plain mahogany and stamped G. Durand- is illustrated in Christopher Payne: European Furniture of the 19th century, Woodbridge 2013, p. 219, 228.
