This typical table falls into a group of Dutch carved and painted wood tables and stands referred to as "Kwabtafels". Kwab refers to the Auricular style of ornament adopted by Dutch Silversmiths such as Johannes Lutma and the van Vianen brothers in the beginning of the 17th century. Much later this style was adopted into the designs of carved furniture as tables, stands and hall benches. (R.J. Baarsen, Nederlandse Meubelen 1600-1800, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Zwolle, 1993, cat. no. 18, pp. 42-43.)
Three comparable Dutch side tables, with the same kind of intricate carved decorations were sold at Christie's Amsterdam, The Schermerhorn Collection, lot 510, 504, 531.
