A mahogany dining table, English, mid-18th century, possibly supplied by Thomas Chippendale (fl. 1766 - 1771 when working without a business partner) for the State Dining Room at Nostell Priory in 1766. In three parts, all with drop-leaves and club legs terminating in pad feet. The parts fixed to the underside with brass catches. The two end sections with cut corners. -- Some have identified this table with the 'pair of very neat mahogany dining tables made of fine wood to join together' referred to in an invoice of 24th June 1766 and which cost £11 0s 0d. However, since this table is in three parts, it is more probable that the Invoice refers to NT 959795.
Date of acquisition not recorded; but by descent and transferred from Treasury in lieu of tax in 2007.
