The above lot with the unusual quadripartite base relates to a group of of tripod tables linked to Chippendale on the basis of the three tables supplied to the lodging rooms at Harewood House and illustrated in C.Gilbert, The Life and Works of Thomas Chippendale, Leeds, 1978, p.256, pl.469. These tables share the same leg profile and scroll foot which can further be seen on a table of 'guadalupe wood' made for No.19 Arlington Street in 1764, now at Aske Hall andillustratedin C.Gilbert, ibid., p.257. pl.470. This pattern of leg with the wrythen turned baluster is seen on a table in satinwood from the collection of N.M.L Watson, Esq. and later sold at Christie's London,21 November 1985, lot 52.
