Notes: Note: Work tables such as this became increasingly popular over the course of the 18th century. They had the stated purpose of storing women''s sewing items but in reality the designs were more focused aesthetic delicacy than practicality. This work table is particularly interesting due to the cruciform shape of the top; most other examples from this time are circular or square. However, such individual items are to be expected from a period when the variety in types and style of household furniture were expanding rapidly
