Further information

The above lot displays the distinct stylistic characteristics associated with a group of documented tables supplied by Thomas Chippendale and also a wider group of tables attributed to his workshop. The design of the baluster tripod support clasped in reeding appears on a design attributed to Chippendale and preserved in the collection at Harewood House, Yorkshire. The hexagonal top with radiating veneers was a frequent feature of Chippendale’s occasional tables and appears on two tables supplied to the Lodging Rooms at Harewood and which are illustrated in G.Gilbert, The Life and Works of Thomas Chippendale, Avon 1978, p.256, pl. 469. Two further tables in ‘Guadalope’ wood and made for Sir Lawrence Dundas for 19 Arlington Street, London also feature hexagonal tops, one of these tables formerly at Aske Hall is illustrated in C.Gilbert, ibid, pl.470, p.257. The sunken Gothic leg panels appear on a related tripod table attributed to Chippendale and sold Christies London, 27 November 2003, lot 15 and also on a satinwood tripod from the N.M.L Watson collection, sold Christie’s London 21 November 1985. Other examples including this features where sold Christies London, 7 July 1994, lot 68 and Christies London, 11 November 1999, lot 30. This form of panel can also be seen on the Chippendale fire screen with Gobelin tapestry panel which was supplied to the tapestry room at Newby Hall, Yorkshire and is illustrated in C. Gilbert, ibid, pl.373, p.184. The under-scrolled foot appears on the painted candlestands by Thomas Chippendale at Blair Castle, Perthshire circa 1758 and on the six torchere stands supplied by Chippendale for the Gallery at Harewood House, Yorkshire, circa 1779 and which are again illustrated in G.Gilbert, ibid, p.383, p.209.
