Footnotes

  • Provenance
    The offered lot was purchased from The Old Clock House, Ascot, 12 August 1966.

    The basic form of the above lot, although with the addition of swagged decoration to the frieze, links it to a group of tables associated with Matthias Lock on the basis of a drawing by Lock in the collection of The V&A Museum. A pair of tables which correspond closely to the V&A drawing were formerly at Ditchley House, Oxfordshire and are now at Temple Newsam (see C.Gilbert, Furniture at Temple Newsam and Lotherton Hall, Vol.II, 1978, no.466).
    Lord Burlington's protégé, the architect Henry Flitcroft (1697-1767) who worked at Ditchley House, is known to have supplied designs for five table frames to the Earl of Litchfield for Ditchley in 1748-9. Notably other tables from this group have been recorded at houses where Flitcroft is known to have worked including St. Giles's House, Dorset, Wentworth Woodhouse,Yorkshire, Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire and Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire. The presence of the Lock drawing in The V&A alongside the similar tables at several Flitcroft commissions suggests that there may well have been a link between the two.

    Other tables from this group include a stripped pine side table formerly with Graham Baron Ash at Wingfield Castle, Norfolk which was sold Christie's, London, 9 December 2010, lot 35 and the St Giles's House tables were sold Christie's, London, 26 June 1980, lot 84, a pair at Shrugborough Hall, Staffordshire and one in the Metropolitan Museum, New York (formerly at Hamilton Palace).
