One of England's greatest stately homes, Petworth House was constructed for the Percy family in the late 17th century.  In 1750 the estate passed to George Wyndham, 3rd Earl of Egremont (1751-1837), a notable art collector and friend and patron of J.M.W. Turner.  The 3rd Earl died with no surviving legitimate heir, and the house passed to his natural son Col. George Wyndham, whom Queen Victoria created Baron Leconfield in 1859.  The table may have been commissioned at this time to commemorate his elevation.
The table was later owned by Charles William Dyson Perrins, heir to the Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce fortune and also owner of the Worcester Porcelain Factory.  On his death in 1958 the table was gifted to the factory and used from 1967 at the company's offices at 30 Curzon Street, London W1.
