Cataloguing

Provenance

Anonymous Sale, Christie's London, 6 July 2000, lot 65


Catalogue Note

This elegant table compares very closely to a number of known tables of this design and which were unquestionably made by Chippendale. Christopher Gilbert describes this model as one of Chippendale’s "most popular occasional table design types" with its veneer-segmented hexagonal top, baluster shaped pedestal and similarly profiled legs with scrolled feet, although presented in several variants1.

Chippendale supplied tables of this type to some of his most important patrons, such as Sir Lawrence Dundas at 19 Arlington Street, London, where he supplied a ‘tea or work’ table. Three further tables were supplied to Sir Edward Lascelles at Harewood House, and also one table supplied to Ninian Home at Paxton House (see Sotheby’s London, 9th July 2014, lot 46).
