This table displays many Irish characteristics, including the pounced ground to the apron decoration and the elongated scrolls trailing down from the tops of the legs. The back-to-back double eagle heads relate to a mahogany side table with complete eagles holding acanthus in their beaks and whose feathered tails become scrolling acanthus carved across the apron (The Knight of Glin & J. Peill, Irish Furniture, New Haven & London, 2007, p. 231, cat. no. 109).
The table is a rare form of centre table, with slightly differing treatment to the friezes. The feet have been cut, but are original.
