The drawing for this most important and imposing table was first published by Matthias Lock in 1746. The unusual jasper top is original.
A very similar table with slight differences in the carved apron, also retaining the original jasper veneered top, was exhibited by Asprey & Co. at the Grosvenor House Art and Antiques Fair, London, in 1993. Both tables are very likely to be from the same workshop.
