An extremely fine quality French serpentine shaped free standing ebony and ebonised bureau plat or centre table inlaid with engraved brass and mother of pearl by Maison Millet. The table has a beautiful central design of delicately inlaid mother of pearl flowers with brass leaves and single brass string inlay. The cabriole legs are adorned with fantastic quality bronze gilt ormolu mounts of females with foliate background terminating to ormolu mounted scroll feet.

The reverse of the mounts are stamped MB (Blaise Millet)

Maison Millet was established in Paris in 1857 by Blaise Millet and operated from premises at 11 Rue Jacques-Coeur, Paris before relocating to 23 Boulevard Beaumarchais. The firm specialised in fine gilt bronzes, furniture and decorative objects and were an active client of Francois Linke. The company won several awards in exhibitions for their work including a gold at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle. In 1897 Blaise’s son Theodore joined the company and in 1902 Maison Millet were commissioned by the Palais de Versailles to replicate Marie-Antoinette's celebrated Grand cabinet à bijoux.
