Note: This pair of side tables is decorated in the Etruscan style fashioned by designers and architects such as Robert and James Adam in the third quarter of the 18th century. This fashion was inspired by Italy and ancient Greece. The use of stained woods like harewood, originally bright green coloured sycamore, together with the fine engraving of the inlay, as well as the case of high quality ormolu metal work, support the attribution to the eminent furniture workshop of Mayhew and Ince, who worked closely together with designers such as Adam. A dressing table from the Mulliner collection with very similar inlay and choice of woods, probably executed by Mayhew and Ince, was made to order for the Prince of Wales, later George IV, and intended as a gift to the Comte d’Artois, brother of French King Louis XVI, though it was never delivered to France.
