Under David Roentgen, the family cabinetmaking workshop in Neuwied (Germany) became the most famous in all of Europe. Like his father Abraham, he specialized in mechanically complex furniture; even this simple table is not opened with a key, but by means of a system of hidden buttons. The tabletop has a chinoiserie scene in marquetry.
