This George III table form, with oval 'Roman-medallion' top and taper-hermed legs, was introduced in the 1770s, and popularised by Messrs. A. Hepplewhite and Co.'s The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Guide, 1788.
A related table executed by Gillow of London and Lancaster is described in their 1781 Sketch Book as an 'Oval Pembroke Table of Satin Wood with Drawer. The top x banded wth Zebra Wood-wth strong Tapered legs...' (S. Stuart, 'More eighteenth-century Gillow Furniture Discovered at Tatton Park', Regional Furniture, 1998, p. 106, figs. 10 and 8).
The present table legs are string-inlaid with pointed arch tablets such as feature on a satinwood 'sheveret' desk attributed to Gillows, and supplied around 1800 for Ardgowan, Renfrewshire (D. Jones and J. Urquhart, 'Gillow in Scotland 1770-1830', Regional Furniture, 1998, p. 139, fig. 22).
