"Large "rustic And Natural" Table Monastery Table "in The Taste" Of Marolles"Large "rustic and natural" dining room table, craft table or monastery table "in the taste" of the Ateliers des Marolles around 1940-1950. It has 3 belt drawers on each side, soberly decorated with a small groove. The top is at the bottom of parquet slats, the edge of the table is at an angle of 45 °, decorated with the same small groove as on the drawers. The tray rests on 4 feet with cut sides and linked together by a spacer, the latter suspended by 2 twisted columns and fixed by keys. Assembly of the tray and feet entirely by rivets, the wood used seems to be ash.
There are 2 iron stamps under the tray, a very clean stamp (see photo), the other identical but badly struck.
Height 78cm (31.2 inches) x Length 219cm (87.6 inches) x width 90cm (36 inches). the Stamp resembles the letter "A", but could also be interpreted as a linked monogram J and T, the letter being crossed by a "steeple needle" or a "papal crosse". Work in the genre of André Arbus, Jean Touret from Ateliers des Marolles, Jean-Michel Frank, de Stijl, François Thévenin or Jean-Charles Moreux.
