This exceptional Irish games table is as functional as it is beautiful. Crafted of Cuban mahogany, it serves as a console table when not in use, but the top folds out to reveal a green baize playing surface, supported by a gate leg, perfect for evening card games. Places on the board are designated for cards and chips, and a small drawer offers convenient storage. A gem of the Georgian style, this table 's design is simple and elegant. A shell ornament graces the frieze, and the front cabriole legs are adorned with ornate relief carving at the knees and terminate in lifelike ball-and-claw feet.

The extreme socio-economic polarity that existed in Ireland for centuries resulted in a large population of poor and a small percentage of elite, with virtually no known middle class. This class structure was reflected in the furniture created during this time. While most did not have access to quality pieces, the privileged class commissioned furnishings, such as this remarkable table, that were unmatched in quality, crafted of the finest materials and exhibited an extraordinary level of artistry. Since few could afford such exceptional furnishings, not many were ever created, making this table an exceptional find.
