Dining Table by Jean Royère

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Made of highly figured oak by Maison Pierre Gouffé -- for whom Jean Royère was the head designer from the mid-1930s to the early 1940s -- this elegant little dining table is exquisitely constructed, and in beautifully original condition. The oblique angle of the table's legs, the bevel of the sides of the top just below the subtly faceted edge, the use of a handsome but non-exotic species of wood, all of these details lend this piece a quietly masculine confidence. It would also make a fine desk.

Retains manufacturer's metal label: "Gouffé / 46.48.50. Faubourg St. Antoine - PARIS"
