Irish Georgian Cabinet

An important  mahogany silver cabinet on stand circa 1775


The rectangular carved moulded edge top above a pair of doors with carved foliate applied ovals and side columns, opening to reveal three deep graduated drawers. The left-hand interior door incised with letter ‘B’.  On a stand support carved in acanthus and half scallop shells terminating on carved cabriole ball and claw feet.

  • Height: 50ins (127cm)
  • Width: 44ins (112cm)
  • Depth: 24ins (61cm)

The attention to detail of this piece is consistent with quality Dublin cabinet making influenced by the great English makers such as William Vile (d.1767). The carving is representative of Booker, Dublin. The frieze acanthus and scallop shell carving is typical Irish form.

Provenance: Believed to be from Knocklofty, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary.
