Lot Essay

This serving-table, designed in the George II 'antique' manner, displays several distinguishing Irish characteristics such as the elongated open scrolls at the head of the legs, the acanthus foliage trailing further down the legs than English counterparts, the scrolled 'hock' and the squared lion-paw foot.

A closely related serving-table of almost identical form, but with shells instead of foliage at the top of the legs, was sold by Archibald Stirling of Keir, Keir Mains, Dunblane, Perthshire, Christie's house sale, 22-23 May 1995, lot 139.
