An early George III mahogany silver table decorated throughout with finely cut blind fretwork, the top veneered with strikingly well figured veneer, the tapering chamfer legs with guttae feet and original leather castors.

This table shows characteristics with a table shown at the Grosvenor House fair in 2000 by Pelham Galleries. That example, whilst being black and gilt japanned and of serpentine shape, exhibits similar fretwork and brackets, together with elegant taper legs and classical feet to castors. It is evident that this form of table had a restrained type of low rim or gallery to the top rather than the pierced galleries generally found on 19th Century Chippendale revival furniture.
Interestingly Thomas Chippendale himself refers to this type of table as a”china table” intended for the elegant display of fine porcelain tea ware such as the new factories of Chelsea, Bow and Derby. It is possible that the name”silver table” was coined much later to describe any form of four-legged tray top table, particularly referring to Irish Examples.

N.B. It is likely that the laminated gallery originally stood some ½ inch taller, similar to the Pelham table.
