The mixing table, a small marble-topped cabinet, seems to have been made primarily in Philadelphia and Baltimore, possibly for the southern trade. There are many examples in the Grecian Plain-Style and Gothic taste, indicating that the form originated in the 1830's, and one, c.1835-45, labeled by Anthony Quervelle of Philadelphia, is known. Though the origin of the concept is unknown, there seems little doubt that the basic design was inspired by designs for "Pedestals for Sideboard Tables" (pl. LXVI) and "Pedestal Sideboard and Wine Cooler" (pl. LXXV) in George Smith's The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Guide (London, 1828), a popular and influential design directory. Today, it is ideal as an entry hall table or as an additional serving piece.
