Lot Essay

The partnership of John Mack, Zachariah Williams and William Gibton traded together from 1810 in Stafford Street, Dublin, until John Mack's death in 1829, when Williams and Gibton, the makers of this desk, continued to work together until the death of Gibton in 1842. This desk probably dates from the latter half of Williams and Gibton's partnership.
