Attribution : Michael Rummer (1747-1821)
Michael Rummer was one of the eminent cabinetmakers active in Berlin towards the end of the 18th century. His style is characterized by pure lines, mechanical furniture, neoclassicism and the influence of David Roentgen (friezes, bronzes, legs,…).
Mechanical table in a veneer of cherrywood, Bronsinum and pearwood, on a frame of oak and pine. The top is decorated in marquetry, with a ribbon rolled around a stick. The table unfolds after rotating the top, to reveal a writing box, giving access to storage space and press buttons to open three secret drawers in the apron.
The secret doors can be opened thanks to the press buttons located on the apron and underneath the frame.
