This gateleg table shows certain similarities with two groups of furniture, firstly, a group of games-tables executed by Peter Hoese for Schlo Moritzburg, outside Dresden, where the straight, turned and tapering leg was deliberately employed in imitation of earlier English furniture styles. A bill dated 2 September 1727 from Peter Hoese, the Court cabinetmaker, gives the following details: '60 Thl vor 4 Englische Spiel Tischgen von Nubaum flaser auf beyden Seiten fournirt...' (G. Haase, Dresdener Mbel des 18. Jahrhunderts, Leipzig, 1983, p. 312, figs. 140, 141). The second related group of furniture was executed in Brunswick. The tables have a similar gateleg-action and turned tapering legs and are dated to 1725-30. (H. Kreisel, Die Kunst des deutschen Mbels, Munich, 1970, vol. II, p. 366, fig. 81).
