Charles II olive oyster floral marquetry table

Important English Furniture –

This accomplished Charles II marquetry table clearly bears the influence of Dutch and French masters of marquetry, working in the last quarter of the 17th century such as, Gerrit Jensen, Pierre Gole and Jan Van Meekeren. Gole, a Dutchman who moved to Paris to work for the court was at the forefront of richly inlaid designs of floral motifs and renowned for his marquetry of brass and tortoiseshell, made famous by his son-in-law André Charles Boulle. Golle’s son, Cornelius, was appointed by Queen Mary II in the earlier years of her reign and followed her move to England from France in 1683.

The table in form relates to a group of pieces attributed to Gerrit Jensen held at Ham House and a further table at the Victoria and Albert museum. However, the marquetry of this table is of a quality that exceeds the known works of Jensen. We believe that the table is not by a single maker but a collaboration between two greats, Gerrit Jensen and Pierre Gole.
