The marquetry decoration of this games table has some elements that can be associated with the the work of the eminent 18th century Royal cabinet-maker John Cobb.
The Floral marquetry and the quality of the inlays to this table are exceptional and Cobb was the master at marquetry. John Cobb was the only English cabinet maker at the time designing furniture with a French style, making a lower drawer as part of his commodes to form the apron, rather than in the usual way of incorporating the apron as part of the carcase. In fact you end up having a concealed drawer within the frieze/apron part of the table.
