Bretter, and Ulrich Leben, Honoré Lannuier, Cabinet Maker from Paris: The Life and Work of a French Ebéniste in Federal New York, (New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1998), p. 208, no. 65 while the pair was later sold at Doyle, New York, American Furniture & Decorations, November 29, 2006, sale 06AM02, lot 2135. The pair of tables has applied ormolu mounts on their frieze whereas the currently offered lot has a unique attribute of a brass inlaid anthemion.
