Gillows of Lancaster produced a small mahogany dressing-table of similar form in June 1792 for the Bishop of St. Asaph, no.17,794, made by Robert Fell. The monochrome sketch is illustrated in Lindsay Boynton’s 'Gillow Furniture Designs 1760-1800' (The Broomfield Press, London, 1995), fig. 30.

In 'Pictorial Dictionary of British 18th Century Furniture Design: The Printed Sources' (Antique Collector’s Club, 1990), Elizabeth White includes a section on ‘writing, drawing and work tables (with rising tops)’, explaining that: ‘Various designers published patterns for tables with rising hinged tops which are sometimes referred to as ‘Architects’ Tables’’ which were probably intended to be placed in gentlemen’s libraries. ‘Designs were also produced for other smaller tables for reading, writing and working at, especially towards the end of the century, replacing the standard type of multi-purpose claw table of earlier decades, and their decoration could be quite elaborate’ (p.291).
