Nether Lypiatt in Gloucestershire was probably built circa 1700 - 1705 by an unknown architect for Judge John Coxe (d.1728). Judge Coxe was clerk of the Patent Office and also represented Cirencester and Gloucester in Parliament. The house remaind with his descendants until 1884 (O. Hill and J. Cornforth, English Country Houses, Caroline, 1966, pp. 211-217).
This table was probably bought in the 1930s by Solomon Joseph Gubbay, a rope and jute merchant, who formed an eclectic collection of furniture, much of which has been sold at Christie's, London. (see lots 83-84, 14 April 1996 and lot 56, 15 April 1999 and lot 5, 27 November 2003).
