Some of the rarest and most sought-after antique furnishings are those hailing from the Emerald Isle, and this exceptional George II-period side table beautifully illustrates the very best of Irish craftsmanship. Irish furniture is extremely scarce, and few other examples can match this table in terms of quality, versatility, and beauty. The table is crafted of mahogany that has aged to a brilliantly deep patina. The carving is exquisite: from the sea shells present on the facade and cabriole legs, to the meticulous detail given to the ball and claw feet. Completing the table's design is a thick slab of beautifully grained marble, adding a classical touch to this majestic furnishing.

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 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 that were unmatched in craftsmanship. Since few could afford such furnishings, not many were ever created, making this table an exceptional find.
