The table has a robust palm-and-acanthus wrapped pillar in the manner of 'Pillar and Claw Table' patterns illustrated in George Smith's Collection of Designs for Household Furniture, 1808, pl. 69. The bacchic lion-monopodium of its tripod 'claw' relates to those of a chair pattern in Thomas Sheraton's Cabinet-Maker, Upholsterer and General Artist's Encyclopaedia, 1804, pl. 12.
Another table with closely related base and certainly from the same workshop was sold, the property of a Gentleman, Christie's, London, 4 July 2002, lot 88. Interestingly, that table also supported an Italian specimen marble top.
