The table retains virtually all the original japanning and the original swan-neck handle to the frieze drawer. The stretcher is stamped ‘I H’ to the underside. The workshop of Giles Grendey often stamped their furniture with the initials of the individual cabinet-maker. The japanning is typical of the Grendey workshop and compares to the well documented red japanned suite of furniture supplied to the Duke of the Infantado in Spain.

Some pieces in the Spanish suite are also stamped with a variety of different double initials.
