The table base conforms to the oeuvre of Benjamin Goodison. The scagliola top is richly decorated in strapwork, flowers and birds as well as exquisitely detailed harbour scenes. The central oval features a drawing depicting Rinaldo and Armeda after Tasso’s Gerusalemme Liberata, published in 1581.

The top relates to another table top signed by Petrus Antonius de Paulinus, a monk active in Tuscany in the early 18th century. This top also has a central oval panel with a drawing after Titian.

The top is intended for a centre table, and although the base is conceived as a side table, it is finished all round, only differing in carved detail at the reverse side.

The table: English, circa 1740

The scagliola insert: Italian, circa 1735
