The top of this side table is inlaid with coloured marble. An inscription beneath records that the marbles are collected at the Baths of Caracalla in Rome in 1828 by Catherine Davidson of Ridley Hall, Northumberland. She presumably had this table made up when she came back to England, although it is very similar in design to a table by the great French cabinet maker Georges Jacob. The table itself is pine, veneered in rosewood.
