A tripod table with 'piecrust' top and richly-carved base that had once belonged to Percival Griffiths and then Geoffrey Blackwell, was sold by a descendant of Blackwell's, Christie's, London, 14 June 2001, lot 35 (£135,750). Another tripod table, but with plain circular top, also formerly in the collection of Geoffrey Blackwell, was sold by one of his descendants, Christie's, London, 24 November 2005, lot 10 (£102,000). The octagonal top is unusual and a tripod table with richly carved base and square top that may have been reduced in size, was sold by the late 2nd Viscount Camrose, Hackwood Park, Hampshire, Christie's house sale, 20-23 April 1998, lot 123. Later in the 18th century, Thomas Chippendale supplied hexagonal topped tripod tables to Sir Lawrence Dundas for 19 Arlington Street. These were veneered in 'Guadalupe' wood and supplied in 1764 (C. Gilbert, The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale, London, 1978, vol. II, p. 257, fig. 470).
Mrs Chapman was James Thursby Pelham's daughter.
