Note: In the 1970s, Pierre Deshays, successor to Pierre Delbée as President of Jansen, introduced a line of furniture available to designers worldwide, called the Jansen Collection. The 'Royal Table' was one of the more successful designs from this line. This extension table is showcased in the entrance hall in photographs of Suzy and Pierre Delbée's Paris apartment (see J. A. Abbot, Jansen, New York, 2006, pp. 182-183). It reflects the company's ability to adapt to the contemporary desire for flexibility and accessibility in this period as it easily converts from dining table to a demilune console.
Further 'Royal' tables by Jansen were sold at Christie's, New York, 26 November 2002, lot 252 and 3-4 September 2004, lot 347.
