The company go back to 1778 under Joseph Trollope who was a wall paper hanger. His sons enjoyed Royal Patronage and expanded into interior decoration and then estate agency. A separate branch of cabinet makers was set up and the different arms of the company which was also by now include property development continued into the 20th century. In 1903 they merged with the builders Colls and Sons. They won contracts with Haarland & Wolf, the builders of the Titanic, to furnish and interior decorate the White Star Line. It is probable that this gaming table was made for one of these passenger ships and certainly it would look at home in the casino of a luxury liner. Four pullout glass topped trays for drinks are fitted alternately with drawers to the eight sides. The table is also stamped Hamiltons Patent 883, which may refer to the sliding glass tray system. The antique period is early 20th century.
