The Surtout de Table first appeared in the 17th century as a utilitarian object designed to protect polished wooden tables. It rapidly evolved to fill the role of ornamental table centrepiece and was often made in sections allowing its length to be determined by the table. Both the Flower Cone and the Pont d’eau are modern interpretationsof these domestic monuments.
