The pedestal tables (Sehpa) dating from the 17th century are very rare. A very similar pedestal table, with a decoration and proportions close to this one is in the Mevlâna Müzesi in Konya (Inv. no. 354). A scribe's chest with the same decoration is in the British Museum (1991,0717.2), published in Ladan Akbarnia, The Islamic World: a History in Objects, Thames and Hudson, London, 2018, p. 158.
