This Louis XVI-style French card table was designed with both elegance and function in mind. Adorned by Sèvres-style porcelain floral plaques and gilt bronze mounts, its serves as a well-appointed side or console table when not in use. When one is ready for a card game, the table quickly transforms into a sturdy playing surface, complete with green felt, by simply unfolding the hinged top. Exhibiting the timeless grace of traditional Louis XVI design, the table is a triumph of early 19th-century inventiveness.

Card playing and gambling were very popular pastimes among the fashionable elite during the 18th- and 19th-centuries, and tables such as this were specially crafted and housed in some of the finest estates throughout Europe. To find a porcelain-mounted example is a rarity, particularly in such excellent condition.
