    An occasional table bought by Sylvia Plath when she was living at Court Green, between 1961 and 1962.

    Writing to Anne Stevenson in 1986, Ted Hughes recalled that both he and Plath had been "enthralled" with their new home when they moved in together at Court Green in 1961: "The Devon house was as precious to her [Plath] at the end as the beginning of this last phase of her life..." (Letters, Faber, 2007, p.516).

    Provenance: Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, at Court Green, Devon; given to Frieda Hughes by her father "when I left home at 18". Frieda was told later that her mother had bought the table from Heals.
