This table bears a very close resemblance to one illustrated as a “china table” in Thomas Chippendale’s, The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director. This type of table today is more commonly referred to as a silver table. Thomas Chippendale was born in 1718 in Otley, North Yorkshire. His family had long been involved in the wood working and timber trades and he was probably received a practical apprenticeship from his father. He may well have had further training with Richard Wood, the leading furniture maker in York, before moving to London. Chippendale probably worked as a journeyman cabinet maker and freelance designer before embarking on his great project, the publication of his lavish book The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director. which was published in 1754 and illustrated with plates of ‘Elegant and Useful Designs of Household Furniture in the Gothic, Chinese and Modern Taste’.
