The sideboard-table's lozenge fretted frieze relates to a pattern published in Thomas Chippendale's Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director, London, 1st ed., 1754 pl. CXIV. A related example with further fretted legs was illustrated in H. Cescinsky, English Furniture of the Eighteenth Century, London, 1911, vol. II, p. 286, fig. 318. A further related example from Linlathan, Forfar, but with a more complex pierced fretwork frieze is illustrated in M. Harris & Sons, An Abridged Introductory Catalogue of Antique Furniture, London, p. 56, no. F7104.
