Further information

An olivewood and marquetry table top of similar design of the same period is illustrated in A.Bowett, English Furniture 1660-1714, From Charles II to Queen Anne, p. 61, plate 2:43, showing the variety created by transposing elements of the design, so that no two quadrants of marquetry are identical, as illustrated here. A similar chest from Clevedon Court, Somerset is illustrated in R.Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture, Vol II, p.34, fig 16. See also Bonhams, London 4 November 2015, lot 128 for a closely related chest (sold for £43,750 inc, premium).
