Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Height 74cm, fully extended width 397cm, depth 131cm (please note that each of four leaves of approximately 63cm in width can be removed as required to adjust the table width, i.e. with 3 leaves table length is 334cm).
This form of expanding table has been named a 'Cumberland' table, possibly after Cumberland Lodge, Windsor.
The die-stamped patent label of the King Street cabinet-maker David Edwards (d. 1848) appears in similar reed-framed tablets on the trestle pillars of other tables with Grecian-scrolled 'claws' (C. Gilbert, The Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, figs. 310-312).
In the early 1820's Edwards is listed in George IV's Household Accounts, which are now preserved in the Windsor Archives (C. Gilbert and G. Beard, The Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840, Leeds, 1986, p. 269).
