Description & Technical information

The table is exceptionally well carved, suggesting a metropolitan workshop. The ‘Serrancolin Ilhet’ marble insert is of later date.

The original white statuary marble has been retained. The corner angles to the legs are restorations. Tables with marble inserts are unusual. A pair of mahogany side tables also with marble inserts were in the collection at Corsham Court in Wiltshire and photographed in situ by Country Life.
