The distinctive marquetry decoration and in particular the medallions on this table are virtually identical details to a table discussed in an article in Connoisseur magazine. A further virtually identical table is in the collection at Langleys in Essex, England, where a bill from Elliott survives.
Elliott was appointed a royal cabinet-maker from 1783 to 1810.
