Lot Essay

These tables reflect the revived interest in 18th century 'Adam' furniture during the latter part of the 19th century. The form of these tables corresponds to those of circa 1795 recorded as being presented by Horatio, Lord Nelson to Emma, Lady Hamilton and descended through the family to Lady Binning (illustrated in M. Harris and Sons, Old English Furniture, London, 1946, p.91).
