The book-matched veneered satinwood top with serpentine sides and canted corners is adorned with stained floral marquetry designs with kingwood crossbanding and gonçalo alves mouldings. The gilt bronze mounts are fitted to the marquetry decorated satinwood frieze and there is a concealed centre drawer. The table stands on elegant swept cabriole legs with gilt bronze and ormolu mounts.
The French style of furniture was very much the fashion of the day and this design is in the Louis XV manner, of Arc-en-arbalette form.

Marquetry, of similar design to that on this table has been connected with a family of marquetry workers, The Blakes, whose workshops were adjacent to Baldock’s retail premises.
