  • A closely related table is illustrated in C.Gilbert, Marked London Furniture 1700-1840, Leeds 1996, p.471, pl.957. The same brass label that appears on the table offered here is illustrated by Gilbert, op. Cit. p.473, pl.961.

    The Wilkinson firm was originally established in Moorfields around 1766 by Joshua Wilkinson and his eldest son moving to the sign of 'The Easy Chair', 7 Brokers Row, Moorfields in 1784 and began trading as Wilkinson & Sons. The firm was taken over by the second son William and his cousin Thomas Wilkinson trading from Nos. 9 & 10 Brokers Row. The firm became known for their range of patent tables and in 1807 the firm advertised dining tables that when closed occupied 'a space considerably smaller than is necessary for the standing of any other dining table now in use'. The partnership ended in 1808 when William set up on his own at 14 Ludgate Hill and Thomas continued at 10 Broker's Row until 1828.
