Elements in the design of the present table have marked affinities with documented examples of early 18th century giltwood furniture by the Royal cabinet-maker James Moore. In particular the double strapwork aprons and the strapwork decorated top relate to tables in the Royal collection recorded at Hampton Court Palace, and Kensington Palace, both by the same maker. A possible influence on Moore and his predecessors' designs was a French engraving for a side table by Pierre Le Pautre, published in his Lievre de tables qui sont dans les apartmments du Roy, c. 1700, pl. 4, which in common with the offered lot features a diaper trellis pattern to part of its frieze (see Adam Bowett, Early Georgian Furniture, 1715-1740, 2009, pp. 300-201, pls. 5:1-5:3).
