Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The type of base on this piece preceed,s and probably was an inspiration for, the more intricate tri-form base found on furniture made by Thomas Chippendale and illustrated in "The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director", which was first published in 1754. Laburnum was used primarily as a veneer from late seventeenth century, particularly in parquetry It has dark rich blackish-brown colour, the use of this timber in the solid in this piece would indicate that it was probably commissioned for a wealthy important client.
