The possible attribution to Mayhew and Ince is primarily based on a table of the same overall form probably supplied by them to Croome Court, Worcestershire, and now in an English private collection (A. Coleridge, 'English furniture supplied for Croome Court', Apollo, February 2000, p. 12, fig. 8).
A table of this form with a more heavily-carved base is illustrated in G. Wills, English Furniture 1760-1900, London, 1971, fig. 90 and pl. 15. It was subsequently sold by R.B.W. Clarke, Esq., from Bridwell, Devon, at Bearne's Torquay, 14 October 1992, lot 26 (£43,000). Another closely related table was exhibited by L. Lowenthal at The Antique Dealers' Fair, 1952.
A card-table with related fold-out top revealing a decorated medallion is illustrated in P. Macquoid, A History of English Furniture, The Age of Satinwood, London, 1908, pl. VI.
here is a related envelope tripod table in the drawing-room at Oakly Park, Shropshire, illustrated in C. Noel, 'Living Rooms', House and Garden, October 2001, p. 225.
