In 1813 Gillows of London and Lancaster supplied a similar 'Set of mahogany Imperial dining-tables on stout twined reeded legs and brass socket casters' for Broughton Hall, Yorkshire at a cost of 50 gns. Prior to this Richard Gillow had taken out a patent in 1800 for an extending table, known as the 'Patent Imperial dining-table' (M. Jourdain, Regency Furniture 1795-1830, London, rev. ed., 1965, p. 64-65, fig. 130).
A related example with well-spaced reeded legs and reeded edge to the top, attributed to Gillows and almost certainly supplied to John, 2nd Marquess of Bute (d. 1848) either for Cardiff Castle or Luton Park, was sold by the late 6th Marquess of Bute, Christie's, London, 3 July 1996, lot 43. Another closely related example, also attributed to Gillows, was sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 30 November 2002, lot 140 (£91,750 including premium). Most recently, a related 18ft. dining-table veneered in brown oak and with padouk legs was sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 23 November 2006, lot 74 (£198,400 including premium).
