Those two tables are made in American School of French Marquetry by W Patrick Edwards and they are re-creations of the “family table” that belonged to Louise-Marie, the eldest daughter of King Louis-Phillippe of France.
The original was probably made by Alexandre Bellange and exhibited at the Products of Industry Exhibition held in Paris in 1834.
W Patrick Edwards makes his re-creations of antique furniture using only the original tools and methods of the pre-industrial period .
He saves the past for the future .
