The stand is likely to have served for a break-front cabinet that may have been marble-enriched. With its reed-gadrooned cornice, serpentined feet and acanthus embellishments, it relates in particular to the George I gessoed table at Erdigg, Denbigshire, which was photographed by Country Life, around 1920, and attributed to James Moore (d. 1726), see R. Edwards and M. Jourdain, Georgian Cabinet-Makers 1700-1800 , London 1955, rev. ed. pp. 44 and 131, pl. 136. The Dublin carving and gilding firm of Daniel Egan was trading as dealers in works of art and furniture, at Lower Ormond Quay from 1914 and at St. Stephens Green from 1930.
