Catalogue Note

Tables with eagle supports are commonly described as 'in the manner of William Kent', although only one published design by him is recorded which has any relationship to this form, and there are no documented examples which can with certainty be attributed to him. Kent's design was used as tail-piece in Pope's edition of Homer's Odyssey, which was published 1725/6, and shows two fighting eagles with out-spread wings standing on a large pier table with a Greek-key ornamented frame above a solid shaped stand ornamented with Bacchic masks and garlandsAn interesting trade card, dated 1739, for Francis Brodie, the Edinburgh cabinetmaker, illustrates an interior with a group of furniture, including a related console table with an eagle support.
