Catalogue Note

The central patera and arabesques on the top of the present lot relate to marquetry designs on a Pembroke table supplied to Newby Hall, Yorkshire and a pier table sent to Harewood House, Yorkshire, by Thomas Chippendale in the 1770s.  The distinctive whorled rosettes on the top corners are comparable to those on an inlaid secretaire also supplied by Chippendale to Harewood House at the same time (C. Gilbert, The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale, London 1978, Vol.II, figs.96, 459, 474).
