Side tables are used at the side of the room and therefore they are always left unfinished and undecorated on the rear side, since the back was never intended to be seen.
The Coke Family, Sharrington Hall, Norfolk.
Brookhill Hall (near Pinxton, Derbyshire) has belonged to the Sacheverell Coke family since the mid 16th Century. Brookhill Hall housed one of the finest collections of English period oak furniture, most of which was made for the house – a collection exceptional in both its quantity and the quality of the workmanship.
‘Treasures of Derbyshire Houses: V. The Oak of Brookhill Hall’, in Derbyshire Life & Countryside, August 1970, pp.30-31. Both articles are illustrated with photographs of Brookhill Hall and its contents.
Bibliography: An oak side table which has a frieze carved in low relief with a very similar design is illustrated in Ralph Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture: Volume Three (Antique Collectors’ Club, 1983), p.276, fig 5. This table is dated c.1650.
