The scroll-cornered top of this Drawing Room window-pier table, is designed in the 1800 French/antique fashion and conceals a baize-lined interior, while its 'Grecian' ribboned border of black-figured rosewood is inlaid with golden 'boulle' fillets. Golden Egyptian reeds frame the fine-figured veneer, which is sunk in the frieze tablet between festive Bacchic tablets. These golden tablets bears antique 'bronze' lion-head reliefs above elegantly scrolled legs, that are herm-tapered, reed-enriched and terminate in 'bronze' monopodiae. An associated card table, wreathed by Louis Quatorze 'boulle' ribbons mosaiced in black and gold chevrons in a manner associated with the St. Paul's Churchyard cabinet-maker George Oakley (d.1840), was sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 26 January 2007, lot 1221.
A pair of rosewood card tables of similar design were sold anonymously, Bonhams, London, 20 November 2007, lot 158 (£20,400).
