Maison Jansen Tortoise Shell Finished Dining, Louis XVI Style, Bronze Mounted



Maison Jansen Tortoise shell finished dining or conference table. This stunning Louis XVI style, bronze mounted, table is simply spectacular. The bronze sabots and casters support a reeded tapering group of table legs supporting a bronze framed apron with a bronze framed table top recently refinished. The whole with a double drop down leg support should it be needed. The table comes with two 24 inch leaves.
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 and 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 Ste´phane Boudin (1995). Mr. Abbott co-wrote with Elaine Rice a further exploration of the Kennedy White House decor, 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
