French Art Deco Center, Dining or Conference table by Jules Leleu with provenance.
Part of our extensive collection of over forty dining tables and chair sets as seen on this site, thus why we are referred to as the King of Dining rooms. The fruitwood marquetry and abalone-inlaid rosewood top has been fully refinished and sits on a bronze mounted double pedestal base. This table is expandable; having extensions on both sides for custom made insertable leaves. Leaves do not accompany table.
Jules Leleu (1883-1961)
