This table relates closely to a `family' of furniture known to have been supplied by Chippendale. Many of the characteristics of the present table can be seen in other items of furniture known to have been supplied by Chippendale. The present table is in the French style with its beautifully formed and carved cabriole legs. The shape of the legs is closely related to a pair of card tables supplied to Sir Lawrence Dundas for the blue drawing room at Dumfries House and illustrated by Christopher Gilbert, op. cit, p. 402. Moreover the design for the leg is closely based on a drawing for chair frames now preserved in the Metropolitan Museum.  The form of the leg embellished with Grecian palms that feature in this design is for a chair design of 1765 provided by the architect Robert Adam and executed by Thomas Chippendale for Sir Lawrence Dundas,Christopher Gilbert, op. cit., figs, 402 and 176.
