Lot Essay

The Prescott Collection, which was sold at Christie's New York on 31 January 1981, was one of the most important English furniture collections to be sold in the last quarter of the century. The sale consisted mostly of late 17th and 18th Century English furniture ranging from rare early stumpwork pieces, hangings and other small objects, to some exquisite pieces of Georgian walnut and mahogany furniture, including a George I burr-walnut bureau-bookcase, and a George I walnut and oak dressing-table, both of which were previously in the Percival Griffiths Collection.

A pair of William and Mary black and gilt-japanned card-tables also from the Prescott Collection, are lot 34 in this sale.
