Nesting tables play hide and seek

Nesting tables play hide and seek

The term "trundle", which describes movable objects that fit together, goes back to the character of Mother Gigogne, known since 1602 in French puppet theaters. This lady, very tall and very strong, was always presented accompanied by a slew of children emerging from under her petticoats. By analogy, the term is first passed to Russian wooden dolls, then to furniture, including tables. The proper name "Gigogne" could itself originate from the Latin "gigas", large, enormous, by allusion to the very respectable size of the famous puppet.
