Lot Essay

Moore trained in London with the firm of Ince and Mayhew, possibly as a marqueteur, and his neo-classical marquetry closely resembles that of his former masters. Moore moved to Dublin before 1782 where he built a successful business. Moore’s work as an independent supplier of ‘Inlaid Work’ differs, however, in his two-dimensional ornamentation, the use of naturalistic floral and foliate motifs and restrained classical motifs.
