Lot Essay

The table is designed in the early 19th Century 'antique' manner with plinth-supported ends, of inverted-lyre scroll form centred by a medallion, both deriving from a library table illustrated in Thomas Hope's Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, London, 1807 and from engravings of the celebrated marble 'tomb of Agrippa'.
