The circular 'Brocatelle di Spagna' marble top is surmounted by a pierced brass gallery, above an indian rosewood brass-strung frieze mounted with five pointed stars, set on three scrolled monopodia supports joined by a circular stretcher, ending in claw feet with castors. Decorated with four brass pendant rings.

The occasional table is closely modelled on a guéridon made by Bernard Molitor (1755–1833), ‘maître ébéniste’ from the Ancien Régime to the Bourbon Restoration. Molitor’s guéridon can be distinguished by the scrolled monopodiae supports (an example is illustrated Ulrich Leben, 'Molitor: Ébéniste from the Ancien Regime to the Bourbon Restoration', P. Wilson, London and New York, 1992, p. 74, fig. 62).
Almost certainly George Osborne, 6th Duke of Leeds (d. 1838), Hornby Castle, Yorkshire, and thence by descent.
Recorded in: 'An Inventory and Valuation of the Household Furniture... the property of His Grace The late Duke of Leeds... Hornby Castle, Yorkshire' dated September 1838, in the 'State Bed Room': 'A Rosewood Circular Table with marble top & brass gallery mounted on brass stand' (p. 9).
