Footnotes

  • This table is based on the design for a 'Universal' table published by Thomas Sheraton in his Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing-Book, London, 3rd Edition, 1802, pl.25. Sheraton wrote that 'The use of this piece is both to answer the purpose of a breakfast and dining-table. When both the leaves are slipped under the bed, it will then serve as a breakfast table; when one leaf is out, as in this view, it will accommodate five persons as a dining-table and if both are out, it will admit of eight, being near seven feet long, and three feet six inches in width'.
