Jean Royère, “Créneaux” nesting tables
Jean Royère (1902-1981)
"Créneaux" nesting tables
Set of three "Créneaux" nesting tables, the frameworks are made of gilded patina iron whereas the tops are made of transparent glass slab bordered by a silvered stripe.
The tops set into a metal corner piece and stand on an iron frame in the shape of hollowed rectangles outlining a crenelated pattern. The “Créneaux“ pattern is a classic of Royère’s repertoire who designed a variety of tables, console tables and mirrors carrying it. This variation on the model is perfectly illustrated by the decoration of a dining room in 1955. The pattern was even extrapolated on a few objects in the shape of a Greek cross.
