When compared to the more usual “swing leg”, the concertina action is a much more elegant and desirable way of supporting a card or tea table when open, as it forms a complete table with a leg in each corner. This table has superb constructional qualities, with tight crisp carving and the use of choice veneers throughout, this is truly a choice piece of period English furniture. The adaption of Chippendale patterns and the table’s distinctive Chippendale style and crisp carving are characteristics associated with the work of Wright and Elwick, cabinet-makers from Wakefield, Yorkshire. Richard Wright and Edward Elwick whose partnership lasted from 1747 to 1771, both subscribed to the first edition of Chippendale’s Director of 1754 and enjoyed patronage from a large number of stately homes in Yorkshire and throughout the rest of England.
