Each stand, supported by four circular tapering legs carved in twisted spirals, is of gilt wood decorated with a stylized frieze and draped with swags of gilded lime-wood. A figure in high relief of a lion on one table and of a lioness on the other is encircled by a laurel wreath. The tables came from Olantigh Towers, Wye, Kent, the last owner being a direct descendant of John Sawbridge, who rebuilt Olantigh in 1768. A lion is the Sawbridge crest.
