Lot Essay

Such fretwork, both pierced and 'blind' appeared on an elaborate suite of furniture known as the 'Weller-Poley' suite, sold by the Trustees of the J. H. Weller-Poley Will Trust, in these Rooms, 3 July 1997. A pair of card-table from the suite (lot 23) was sold for £38,900. Such 'Gothick' fretwork designs featured on chair-patterns in Thomas Chippendale's Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director, 1754, pl. XXIV. Tables featuring the same fretwork design include: a side table illustrated in G. Beard and J. Goodison, English Furniture 1500-1840, London, 1987, p. 135, fig. 5; a pair of serpentine card tables sold Christie's, New York, 12 April 1996, lot 169; another serpentine card table from Earl Howe's collection at Gopsall Hall, Leicestershire illustrated in M. Harris & Son, Antique Furniture and Works of Art, London, n.d. (c. 1930), p. 49).
