A rare late 17th Century Charles II Derbyshire oak and carved joined Side Table. Raised on six turned baluster legs with stretchers below a decoratively carved frieze centred by a shield including the date 1678 and inscribed with initials: “I W E”.

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.

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.
