Another table of this pattern, with 'Apollo' lyre trestles brass-inlaid with palms and sunbursts, was offered anonymously, Sotheby's London, 19 November 1993 (lot 140). The lyre form, differently inlaid, also featured on a related table, which like the present lot, came from the Miles family and was sold by Sir William Miles, Bt., Sotheby's London, 15 November 1991, lot 144. That table and the present lot may well have formed part of the furnishings introduced by Philip John Miles (d. 1845), who aggrandised Leigh Court around 1814 in the French Grecian taste (see P. Thornton, Authentic Decor, The Domestic Interior 1620-1920, London, 1993, p. 272, fig. 361).
The present table is embellished with striated corner tablets, such as feature on furniture manufactured by the Tottenham Court Road firm of John McLean and Son.
