Literature

Jeremy Myerson, Gordon Russell: Designer of Furniture, 1992, p. 39 (for a view of Russell's showroom at Lygon Cottage, with a version of the present table)

The Studio Yearbook, 1926, p. 95 (for a smaller variant of the same design)

Notes

Russell designed this table, no. 262, in 1925, but in the absence of a label it is not possible to date this example precisely.  The size was given as 6' x 2'9" x 2"5", and it was priced at £21 in oak, or £22.10s. in brown oak, making these amongst the most expensive of Russell's production at the time.
