This pier table and mirror were made for Shardeloes House in Buckinghamshire, the home of the wealthy landowner William Drake. Beginning in 1758, Drake had his country house remodelled in the Neoclassical style after a design by the eminent Scottish architect Robert Adam. The renovation took some time; only around 1775 were two of these pier tables and mirrors for the large sitting room delivered by the London firm of cabinetmakers Linnell.
