A Very Fine Marquetry Inlaid Table with a Lacquer Top, Retailed by Boin Taburet

Stamped to the underside ‘Boin Taburet’. 

This attractive and unusual small occasional table is finely inlaid with a guilloché running pattern centred by a fine lacquer panel depicting a figure beneath a tree in a stylised landscape.  The tapering square section legs are united by a cross stretcher with a lacquered central boss.


Boin-Taburet was established in 1873 by the antique dealer George Boin and the jeweller Emile Taburet.   

The firm was credited for the revival of interest in Louis XV style silver-work in Paris in the late 1880’s, and awarded a gold medal at the Paris 1889 Exposition Universelle. 

As well as producing exceptional silver and metal work the company retailed small items of furniture and decorative objects of the very highest order, made by the leading ébénistes of the day.

Emile Taburet and Georges Boin worked together until 1900 when Georges Boin associated with the silversmith Henry and created 'Boin & Henry' silversmiths.

French, Circa 1880
