This adorable little piece of furniture is part confiturier / part writing table. The storage underneath would have been used for storing preserves such as jam, honey and pickles - the top perhaps was for noting recipes and listing the contents of the cupboard. Made from walnut, and from the late eighteenth century, Louis XIV period.
Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
