La Grandville 2000, p. 4 (front [color])

Restored by Joël Laplane in 1985. C-holes very vertical, set high (lower eyes above lower body corners) and far from table edges. Vannes 1999: described in an article by M. Regnier in Bulletin du Musée du Vieux Marseille; 2-piece table and back with fold, both with purfling; female head; quotes label (but “reproduction,” no. 2276 is surely only a diplomatic transcription, as noted by Drescher 1990, p. 641).
