A George II Irish Mahogany Silver Table
Ireland, circa 1750

A very fine George II mahogany carved Irish silver table of small proportions. The solid mahogany rectangular top with carved dished lip around the perimeter, the scrolling profusely carved with a central flower bordered by trailing carved acanthus leaves. The legs decorated with a double carved eagle’s head joined by a large acanthus leaf trailing elegantly down the cabriole leg, which in turn tapers down to a carved paw foot. The frieze to the shorter side of the table carved in a similar fashion to the longer frieze. A table of delightfully small proportions, superb colour and patina, a classic piece of Irish furniture.
