Catalogue Note

A related pattern featuring sunflower medallions is illustrated in A. Hepplewhite & Co, The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Guide, 1788, pl. 65. The marquetry tops of the present tables were intended to be placed beneath pier mirrors so that their reflection created the illusion of elliptical marquetry tops centred by oval medallions.

Two very similar pairs of tables sold Christie's London, 17 April, 1997, lot 109 and in these rooms, 9 July 1999, lot 32
