Curatorial note

Incorporating a portfolio cabinet; the two flaps, with rounded corners, supported on turned gate legs; four fixed turned legs at the corners of the deep portfolio cabinet; the cabinet with single flush panel door with unlined keyhole. and small catch (a later addition) but no knob or keyhole escutcheon; all legs on brass castors.

This small table has much the same feel as the small table with portfolio cabinet which slides out of the base of the Apollo (XF179) despite having differently shaped leaves and being somewhat larger.
