19th century French butcher table with original marble top, wrought iron base, and caster wheels. The company loves this piece for its highly unusual oval shape and beautifully fresh turquoise patina. This French butcher table was found in Provence. The French table du boucher, or butcher table, has been a Maison & Co. favorite for some time. These beautiful tables are typically 19th century and feature a cast and wrought iron base with a marble top. Some were used to prepare meat, while others were reserved as presentation tables in the shop's window. These tables are often referred to as pastry tables, but in most cases the primary purpose was for use in a butcher shop. The butcher table gets its character from the base.

They also make great dessert or cocktail tables when entertaining either indoors or outdoors.
