The design of these tables en chiffonière derives from three models dating from circa 1765-70 formerly in the collection of the 4th Marquis of Hertford and now in the Wallace Collection, London (see P. Hughes, The Wallace Collection, Catalogue of Furniture, London, 1996, vol. II, pp. 1070-1085, nos. 211 (F311), 212 (F313) and 213 (F312)). Each altered in the 19th century, the three Wallace tables are attributed to Leleu (F311), Oeben or Riesener (F313) and an imitator of Leleu (F312).
