The removable demi-lune leaf and the castors are original to the table. The hinged flaps can be folded down. The top has acquired an outstanding colour and patination.

Gillows produced horseshoe shaped drinking tables from the 1760s onwards. Their popularity rose in the early 19th century. Their primary use was to dispense drinks after dinner or outside at hunts. On some models the legs could be unscrewed, allowing them to be moved more easily. A strikingly similar table by Gillows is in the collection of Southampton University and is illustrated in Susan E. Stuart’s book on Gillows.
