The prototype for this table was patented in 1835 by Robert Jupe, upholsterer of 47 Welbeck Street, Cavendish Square. The patent specification states that the table was 'an improved expanding table so constructed that the sections composing its surface may be caused to diverge from a common centre and that the spaces caused thereby may be filled  by inserting leaves or filling pieces'. The first tables of this type were produced by Jupe in association with the cabinet-maker John Johnstone of New Bond Street.
