The distinctive palmettes-carved legs, which interrupt the line of the frieze is a feature found on documented seating furniture executed by Thomas Chippendale, notably on two sets of chairs supplied to Edwin Lascelles for Harewood House, Yorkshire in circa 1770-71 (illustrated in C.Gilbert, The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale, New York, 1978, vol.II, p.108, fig.182 and p.114, fig.197). A table of similar form and ornamentation, particularly in comparing the scale and carving to the apron, is illustrated in H.A. Tipping, English Furniture of the Cabriole Period, London, 1922, pl.XXIII. Another similar was sold in these Rooms, 22 October 1988, lot 240. And a further related table in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London is illustrated in D. Fitz-Gerald, Georgian Furniture, London, 1969, no.98.
