A William IV painted birds eye maple marriage table in the manner of Holland and Sons. The rectangular top with rounded corner and decorated with fan motifs and centred with an oval panel with a greyhound with two stars, two crosses and a coronet, and titled ‘CLINTON’ surrounded by painted scenes of a young man and woman with them embracing and dancing, with an outer band of scrolling leaves , with twin frieze drawers to either side , the base with parcel gilt decoration and a lappet carved stem, on four splay legs with scroll feet and castors.
The centre of this table is painted with heraldic symbols which probably relate to Henry Pelham-Clinton , 5th Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne , KG, PC (1811-1864) . He married Lady Susan Hamilton (1814-1888) on the 27th November 1832 and this table might have been made to commemorate their wedding. It may well have formed part of the furnishings of Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire which was demolished in 1938.
