Wimpole, Cambridgeshire (Accredited Museum)
A mahogany fold-over tea table, English, late 18th century. The demi-lune top above plain friezes, raised on four tapering square-section legs. Strung with holly or boxwood to the friezes and legs.
Listed in the Inventory taken at Wimpole in 1965 in No. 3 Bedroom (p. 11). Date of acquisition not recorded, but probably acquired by George Bambridge (1892 - 1943) and Elsie Bambridge (1896 - 1976), who purchased a largely empty Wimpole in 1938. The hall and contents were bequeathed to the National Trust in 1976 by Elsie Bambridge.
