    The fluted shaft and acathus-wrapped base of this table relates closely to a Gillows sketch for a pedestal table (Christie's archives). A similar rosewood pedestal table, though with waved gallery top, was sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 6 March 2003, lot 258. Another pedestal table, apparently identical to the latter, was sold by Lily and Edmond J. Safra, Sotheby's, New York, 3-4 November 2005, lot 521.
