A sideboard table attributed to Thomas Chippendale sold in these rooms, April 26, 2008, lot 186, its frieze centered by a ribbon-tied husk swagged festoon, is very similar to that of the present table. The tulipwood-banded mahogany top framed within Greek-key borders relates to a secretaire-cabinet attributed to sold, Christie's, London, November 24, 2005, lot 131. The paneled tapering legs framed within stepped moldings, palmettes above husk pendants and carved half-moons bases are all devices characteristic of Chippendale's oeuvre (cf., a mahogany cabinet attributed to Chippendale with tapering pilasters and half-moon bases, The Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Gersh, October 18, 2006, lot 66).
