Jean Royère

"Ondulation" Table and Four "Baltique" Side Chairs


circa 1950-1955

ash, opaline glass, fabric upholstery

two chairs with remnants of a period paper label signed JEAN ROYÈRE

table: 29 5/8 in. (75 cm) high; 42 in. (75 x 106.6 cm) diameter

chairs: 37 1/2 x 17 3/8 x 18 in. (95.2 x 44 x 45.7 cm) each

Overall in very good condition. The wooden surfaces present with surface scratches, scuffing and very minor shallow abrasions throughout. The wood with occasional and very minimal white and black paint marks concentrated to the legs and tabletop, the largest on one edge of the tabletop measuring approximately 3/4 x 1/2 inch and not visually distracting.


The circular glass inset is possibly original and presents with age-appropriate wear throughout. The glass with surface scratches, scuffing and occasional and minimal abrasions concentrated to the edges. The reverse of the glass top with scattered losses to the paper surface concentrated to the edges. 


The fabric upholstery has been replaced at some point in the history of the piece and is in very good condition overall.
