Three-Leaf French Maison Jansen Bronze-Mounted Dining Table
A fine ebonized dining table by Maison Jansen with three leaves 20" each. This spectacular Louis XVI style dining table sits on bronze sabots leading to fluted and tapering legs terminating in bronze caps. The nicely chiseled bronze framed apron having cookie cutter corners. The recently ebonized and polished table top framed in a fluted and bordered bronze mount. This piece is accompanied by a letter of Authentication from James Archer Abbott, Author of 'Designing Camelot: the Kennedy White House Restoration' as well as both Jansen Furniture Books. James Archer Abbott serves as Director and Curator of Johns Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum & Library – one of two museums owned and operated by the university. Mr. Abbott's publications include the following exhibition catalogs: Visions of Washington Irving: Selections from the Collections of Historic Hudson Valley (co-author, 1991); Classical to 19th-Century America: The Influence of Berry Tracy on the Historical Interior (1994); and A Frenchman in Camelot: The Decoration of the Kennedy White House by Stéphane Boudin (1995). Mr. Abbott co-wrote with Elaine Rice a further exploration of the Kennedy White House décor, entitled Designing Camelot: The Kennedy White House Restoration, which was published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1998. In 2006, he completed a well-received history of the international design firm Jansen (1880-1989), entitled "JANSEN," and published by Acanthus Press, LLC. This was followed by a companion volume, "JANSEN Furniture," published in spring 2007.
