An early Victorian walnut and ash banded centre table attributed to Thomas Willement (1786-1871), the banded top with a central octagonal medallion and a pierced scroll work pendant frieze on four pieced spire and twist supports and a scrolling X-frame quadripartite base centred by a moulded finial, on flattened bun feet

Thomas Willement is known for his work inspired by medieval design producing designs for furniture, stained glass, panelling and wallpaper. A very closely related table of rectangular form attributed to Willement is pictured in The Country Seat catalogue, 'Signed and Designed II, The Origin of Ornament', p.2. The Country Seat note that this style was part of a brief movement that found popularity at country houses such as Charlecote in Warwickshire (where Willement worked) and Mamhead in Devon. See Plate LXXXIII Elizabethan No. 1 in Owen Jones's 'Grammar of Ornament' and the accompanying text by J.B Waring on its origins.
