These three pieces of furniture were made in the French style, which was emulated in all large Dutch cities in the third quarter of the 17th century. This is evident from their form, the marquetry ornamentation, the gilded mounts and the marble tops. The marquetry vases are taken from French prints and the mounts were probably cast from French examples. This ensemble is exceptionally elaborate by Dutch standards.
