English, c. 1770
The finely figured top with moulded edge and serpentine or butterfly-shaped drop leaves, above a long single cock-beaded end drawer opposing a faux drawer, with replacement axe-head drop handles. Standing on four moulded legs terminating in the original leather barrel castors.
The moulded legs, foliate carving on the spandrels, and gadrooned decoration along the frieze's bottom edge of the present table are some of the characteristic features of the leading Yorkshire cabinetmakers Wright and Elwick (1745-1771). Richard Wright and Edward Elwick advertised themselves on their trade card as `Upholders from London....selling Cabinet work of ye Newest Fashion, Together with all sorts of Household Furniture'. Subscribers to Chippendale`s The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker`s Director, 1754, Wright and Elwick would have been familiar with current London taste. They supplied furniture to the leading families of Yorkshire, including the Earl of Strafford at Wentworth, Sir Rowland Winn at Nostell Priory, the Duke of Norfolk at Worksop Manor, Viscount Irwin at Temple Newsam House and the Marquess of Rockingham at Wentworth Woodhouse.
