This library table formed part of the elaborate interior decoration of the collector Thomas Hope's Picture Gallery at his London residence at Duchess Street. The table was published in Hope's 1807 Household Furniture and Interior Decoration, which illustrated his highly idiosyncratic neo-classical furniture.

Two paintings now in the Institute's collection once hung in Hope's galleries: Titian's The Temptation of Christ and Vasari's Six Tuscan Poets.
