~This large antique French tilt-top ‘wine tasting’ table, or
“table de vigneron” is also a piece of art, with it’s amazing hand painted front!~
~ Popular in the wine growing regions of France, this kind of table was used in all the wineries, when connoisseurs tasted the new wines~
~Traditional design, the round tilt-top table is supported by a rotating lyre shape stretcher. When not in use, the top stands vertically, and the artwork provides an outstanding focal point!~
(An artist in France that painted the table more recently, before we purchased and brought it to the United States)

~Lettering across the table top, “Grand Vin De Bordeaux”, and
the lower table, “Chateau Hautes Graves d’Arthus”, which is a “St. Emilion Grand Cru”!!~
~Huge center design features two stunning rampant lions holding a center crest with a castle, fleur de Lis, and large crown above~
~The banner below inscribed with “In vino vertas”, which is a Latin phrase that means “in wine lies the truth”~

~Excellent attention to details by the artist, sturdy construction on the table, classic French style for today’s home, and a sophisticated, relevant addition to any dining room, wine cellar, etc.~
