The sideboard-table's elegantly-serpentined legs are wrapped by large leaves of Roman acanthus emerging from scalloped lambrequins and terminate in trussed volutes above scalloped plinths. Foliate sprigs also emerge from their moulded frame of ribbon-scrolls in the manner of George II parlour chairs in the 'picturesque' style popularised by Thomas Chippendale's The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker's Director, 1762. The large acanthus leaf was a feature of a set of parlour chairs, which were executed in the early 1740s and bear the label of the Clerkenwell 'Cabinet-Maker and Chair-Maker' Giles Grendey (d. 1780) (C. Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, fig. 434). However, the very elegant form of this table's legs relate in particular to that adopted for the suite of chairs supplied in 1756 for Holkham Hall, Norfolk, by the Soho firm of Messrs. Paul Saunders and George Smith Bradshaw (R. Edwards, The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture, London, 1964, p. 144, fig. 108; and J. Cornforth, 'French Style, English Mood', Country Life, 1 October 1992, p. 80).
