Provenance:

After they were sold at the Erlestoke sale in 1832, where they were repurchased by Robert Hume, they were sold on to another British dealer and jeweller called George Winyatt Farmer who traded from 32 Tavistock Street in Covent Garden. Not much is known about him but he became bankrupt in 1834 and the console tables were offered as lots 54 and 55 on day 2 of his bankruptcy sale held by Edmund Robins on 9 March 1835. See file for the sale rubric.
