The ormolu mounted marquetry inlaid top sits above a single concealed full length drawer. The shapely frieze is intricately decorated with floral marquetry designs and fitted with crisply cast gilt ormolu mounts. The table stands on elegant swept cabriole legs with gilt bronze 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.
