The fine brass inlay of this table suggests that this lot was manufactured in the northern part of India. This type of elaborate decoration was used on a wide array of furnishings and objects during the second half of the 1800s. Cities such as Lahore, Hoshiarpur, Chiniot and Mainpuri were among the locations of production. For a comparably decorated table, a mirror frame and two boxes, see A. Jaffer, Furniture from British India and Ceylon, London, 2001, pp. 293, 114, 291 and 307, respectively.
