B Tytler on New Year's Day in 1936 and bears a conforming inscription (Jaffer, op. cit., p. 373, fig. 142 and sold Sotheby's, 9 July 1993, lot 287). The second table was acquired in Ceylon in 1852 by Lady Dalhousie, wife of the Governor-General of India between 1847-1856, and is distinguished in its employment of the Sinhalese vakadeka motif (sold Sotheby's, Colstoun, 21 and 22 May, 1990, lot 92).
