This table relates to designs illustrated in Thomas Chippendale's The Gentlemen and cabinet-Maker's Director. London 1754.

Wright & Elwick were known to have subscribed to Chippendales Director, and this tables characteristics are almost identical to a suite of chars from Swinton Park in Yorkshire which are now attributed to the Yorkshire based cabinet makers.

Wright & Elwick were a prolific partnership that were established in 1747 they served many of the nobility of the time and documents show that they had a number of commissions from distinguished clients such as Sir Rowland Winn at Nostell Priory, John Spencer at Cannon Hall and the Marquis of Rockingham at Wentworth Woodhouse. These commissions reveal a close following to Chippendales designs
