Catalogue Note

The design for these elegant satinwood work tables is taken from Thomas Sheraton’s The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Drawing Book, published in 1793, plate 54 which is inscribed ‘A Lady’s Work Table’. The present tables correspond exactly with the ensuing description which declares 'The style of finishing them is neat, being commonly made of satinwood, with a brass moulding round the edge of the rim’, and further that ‘The shelf below is shaped something like a boat...which serves as a convenience for sewing implements’.
