Coniferous wood veneered with walnut elm rosewood and boxwood
Berlin, probably Spindler workshop, around 1765
The skillful use of the heavily grained wood, which has been applied to the front and back practically independently of the division into three fields, and the light, feathery rocailles in the corners of the top, are reminiscent of the Bayreuth period of the famous cabinetmaker Johann Friedrich and Heinrich Wilhelm Spindler. They worked for Margravine Wilhelmine of Bayreuth and, from 1763, for her brother Frederick the Great in Potsdam. The extremely elegant table dispenses almost entirely with fittings, allowing the beautiful forms to speak for themselves. The drawer has an unusual division into many compartments.
