Paw-footed Grecian-scroll 'claws' were described as 'antique feet' by Morel and Hughes in 1806 (P. Rogers, 'The Remodelling of Weston Park', Furniture History, 1987, p. 23).
Such card-tables, designed for a window-pier, are likely to have been supplied en suite with a circular centre or 'loo' table. With their Grecian-scrolled 'claws' terminating in bacchic lion-paws they relate to an 1804 'Loo Table' pattern in Thomas Sheraton's Cabinet Encyclopaedia (plate 4 of Tables). Two such 'Eliptic Card Tables', with paw feet, were supplied in 1814 for Paxton House, Berwickshire by the Edinburgh cabinet-maker, William Trotter (d. 1833) (F.Bamford, A Dictionary of Edinburgh Furniture Makers, Leeds, 1983, pl. 61).
