A striking French “Vendange” wine-tasting table. c.1880
With original hand-painted decoration featuring heraldry, beasts and spelling ‘Chateau Balange”.
This table is from a Vineyard in Bordeaux where typically they would be used to display the wines for the wine tasting and selling once yearly, and also for the party at the end of the grape-picking Harvests.
A vineyard depending on size would always own a number of these tables.
