Date: Late 1700s
One of a pair of George III giltwood pier tables by Thomas Chippendale.
Made c1779 it is thought these tables were supplied for the White Drawing Room. They are likely to be the pair listed in the 1795 inventory as ‘2 Pier Tables in burnished Gold with inlaid Marble Tops’. The marble tops are embellished with scagliola – an imitation marble material made from fine-ground plaster of paris mixed with glue, colouring and marble or stone chips.
