The ‘Yellow Siena’ marble top is an 18th century replacement.

Matthias Lock was one of the first designers and craftsmen in Britain to introduce rococo design, and several of his publications appeared before Thomas Chippendale’s The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker’s Director of 1754. Little is known about Lock himself, but it is believed he worked alongside Chippendale on some of his larger projects. As a result, the distinction between Lock and Chippendale is sometimes a little blurred. The distinct cabriole leg boldly carved with acanthus leaf compares to a drawing by Lock preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
