The bedroom apartment 'night-table' reflects the eclectic 'Modern' George III fashion advertised by Messrs. Ince & Mayhew's, Universal System of Household Furniture, 1762 . Being equipped with carrying-handles in a 'china-railed' gallery, that is antique- fretted with flowered-lozenge trellis in 'gothic' cusp-ended compartments, it relates in particular to their 'Night Table' pattern (pl. 33) . While 'gothic' chamfering enriches this table's triumphal-arched frame, which was intended for vase-display, the parquetried tablet of its 'commode' door is mosaiced in the 1770s 'Roman' fashion with a ribbon-banded medallion of marble-figured mahogany. This type of furniture, also with medallion inlay, was later called a 'Pot Cupboard' by Messrs. A. Hepplewhite & Co. who noted that it was 'an article of much use in bed-chambers….' in thei Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Guie,, 1788 (pl. 89). The chamfered rail below the door is a feature often associated with the plainer bedroom furniture made by Thomas Chippendale.
