The circular tilt top has a central field of book-matched, figured rosewood within a broad band of cut brass inlay.  The edge is boldly carved with an acanthus and dart border.  The central support is hexagonal in section with a broad central flange, raised on three powerful and ornately carved legs.  The knees are presented as bold acanthus carved and gadrooned volutes.  The lions’ paw feet have clearly defined knuckles and claws and enclose the original brass castors.  English, circa 1825.

See also S. Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840, Antique Collectors’ Club, Woodbridge, 2008, Vol II, pl. E.5, which shows a pattern for this table in a drawing room layout designed for G.Bamford about 1820-30.  The drawing also shows a pair of bergères and a sofa which correspond to a suite supplied by Gillow & Co. in 1824 to Thomas Wynn (d.1832), 2nd Baron Newborough, for Glynllifon, Caernarvonshire, Wales.  Parallels to the cut-brass work and anthemion carved edging on a long table are shown ibid., Vol. I, p.291, pls 308 and 309.
