The rectangular top profusely decorated with gilded carving in relief with arabesques surrounding a central acanthus motif; the ground decorated with circular punching; above a shaped and concave frieze centred by a cartouche; standing on elegant cabriole legs decorated with carved shells and acanthus; terminating in pad feet.

The gilt gesso side table is very much in the manner of James Moore. Moore was a London based cabinet maker who, together with his partner John Gumley, worked for numerous prestigious and aristocratic clients including George I. Moore is particularly known for his carved and gilded furniture, and there are a number of magnificent pieces – signed by Moore – still in the Royal Collection today. Moore also is known to have worked for the Duke of Montagu, the Earl of Bristol and the Duke of Chandos.
