A coromandel and ivory marquetry centre or Communion table, Indian or Indo Portuguese, rectangular top centred by a cartouche incorporating a winged griffin, profusely decorated overall with bands of interlaced flowers and foliage, square tapering legs, X-shaped stretcher, 74cm high, 77cm wide, 62cm deep. The inclusion of what is thought to be a southern European armorial to the centre of the top might suggest that this table is Indo Portuguese and was made in India under Portuguese patronage. The decoration of the table however appears to relate closely to the Gujurat or Sindh style, therefore it has not been possible to conclude at this stage for certain if this table conforms sufficiently to the style adopted in Goa for it to be titled Indo Portuguese. It is possible that the table was purchased in India and the armorial introduced to the top by another hand during the same or similar period.. Provenance: The White House, Marlborough.
