Lot Essay


This table can be related to the designs and work of the carver and designer Matthias Lock (c. 1710-1765), of Long Acre, London. In particular to two pen and ink drawings for pier tables and mirrors, now in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, acquired by the museum in 1862 and 1863 from his grandson George Lock. This drawing shows a table with the same conjoined C-scroll leg profile, similarly treated elevated feet and pierced frieze.
