Catalogue Note

Also known as 'social' tables, the present lot was intended to be used for after-dinner drinking when it could be drawn near a fireplace and a coaster attached to a hinged rod would circulate port or brandy.

Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture, London, 1954, Vol. III, p. 319 and Susan Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840, Woodbridge, 1988, Vol. I, pl. 247.
