    Lootable
     
    is atablemodel from the18thand19thcenturies, originally designed for the card gameloo, which was also known as lanterloo.
     
    The typicallootable has an oval or round top, and a hinged mechanism fitted to a pedestal base, enabling the table to be easily stored when not in use.Sometimes, antique dealers call any table with a folding mechanism for a "lootable", even if the table top is square or rectangular.
     
    Aloo-tablestands in the hall at Midnight Place in the children's fiction book Midnight is a Place byJoan Aiken.
     
    Gameloo,formerlylanterloo-gamblingcard game often mentioned in English literature. The name derives from the Frenchlanturlu, the refrain of a popular17th-centurysong. Popularity of thegamefaded in the20thcentury.
     
    The players may number from five to about nine, each playing for himself. A standard 52-carddeckis used. In the simplest form of the game, three cards are dealt to each player, and the next card is exposed to establish atrumpsuit. The player to the left of the dealer leads, and one-third of thepoolgoesto the winner of eachtrick. The pool is formed by antes before each deal and may be increased by payments forloo(failure to win a trick) and fines for irregularities.
     
    Burr Walnut
    refers to the swirling figure present in nearly all walnut when cut and polished, and especially in the wood taken from the base of the tree where it joins the roots. However the true burr is a rare growth on the tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. Burr walnut produces some of the most complex and beautiful figuring you can find.
     
    Marquetry
    is decorative artistry where pieces of material (such as wood, mother of pearl, pewter, brass silver or shell) of different colours are inserted into surface wood veneer to form intricate patterns such as scrolls or flowers.
     

    The technique of veneered marquetry had its inspiration in 16th century Florence. Marquetry elaborated upon Florentine techniques of inlaying solid marble slabs with designs formed of fitted marbles, jaspers and semi-precious stones. This work, called opere di commessi, has medieval parallels in Central Italian "Cosmati"-work of inlaid marble floors, altars and columns. The technique is known in English as pietra dura, for the "hardstones" used: onyx, jasper, cornelian, lapis lazuli and colored marbles. In Florence, the Chapel of the Medici at San Lorenzo is completely covered in a colored marble facing using this demanding jig-sawn technique.
     
    Techniques of wood marquetry were developed in Antwerp and other Flemish centers of luxury cabinet-making during the early 16th century. The craft was imported full-blown to France after the mid-seventeenth century, to create furniture of unprecedented luxury being made at the royal manufactory of the Gobelins, charged with providing furnishings to decorate Versailles and the other royal residences of Louis XIV. Early masters of French marquetry were the Fleming Pierre Golle and his son-in-law, André-Charles Boulle, who founded a dynasty of royal and Parisian cabinet-makers (ébénistes) and gave his name to a technique of marquetry employing brass with pewter in arabesque or intricately foliate designs.
