This 19th century French butcher table has a marble top and beautiful wrought iron base. It is rare to find a “butterfly” style table with its original marble top and working caster wheels. This charming table was found in a small village of 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.
