Lot Essay

Features of this table relate closely to the documented work of Thomas Chippendale. The distinctive quarter-veneering of the top appears on a shaving table supplied by Chippendale for Paxton House in 1774 (illustrated in C. Gilbert, The Life and Works of Thomas Chippendale, vol. II, 1978, p.253, pl.462) and on two tea tables provided for Harewood House (op.cit., p.256, pl.469). The shaped brass pulls are similar to those used on furniture supplied to Paxton, Dumfries House and Nostell Priory.
