The present table with its decisively carved hipped legs and frieze pierced with trellis and centred by a portrait medallion is comparable to several examples illustrated in H. Kreisel, Die Kunst des deutschen Möbels, Vol. II, München, 1970, pl. 483-484 and in C, Graf von Pfeil, Die Möbel der Residenz Ansbach, München, 1999 p. 170.
The label to the reverse of the frieze represents the coats-of-arms arms of Milbanke impaling another, probably Mansfield. These almost certainly belong to Sir John Ralph Milbanke 8th Bt. (1800-1868) and his wife Emily, daughter of John Mansfield of Digswell House, Hertfordshire. They were married in 1843. Sir John Milbanke was British ambassador in Munich.
