    The lower stretcher of this table is typical of the work of George Jack and the legs and turned spindles of Philip Webb. An identical table formed part of Morris & Co.'s 1889 furnishings at Bullerswood, Kent. A similar table of green-stained oak was offered as lot 92 in The Best of British, Paul Reeves and Sotheby's London, 20 March 2008.
