Thomas Chippendale; The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker`s Director, 1762 ed., No LXXX includes the design for a Library Table from which the offered lot is copied ( see illustration). Examples of furniture in Chippendale`s style are numerous but it is most unusual to find such a precise replication of the scale and design of a printed pattern. The Director was first re-issued by the publisher John Weale in the early 1830s and proved extremely popular and had run through several different editions by the end of the 19th century.
A similar example was sold in these rooms 9 July 1993, lot 129.
