Description

Close view of the leg in the form of a chimera or sea dog resting on the foot in the shape of a tortoise, of the sea-dog table in the Withdrawing Chamber at Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire. The table is walnut, inlaid with other woods, and marble dating from around 1580, and the design is derived from an engraving by Jacques I Androuet du Cerceau.
