Irish Furniture

(M. Ford Creech)

Pair of George I Irish Cuban Mahogany Carved Side Chairs with ribbon carved knees and web carved pad feet.

The rectangular molded top above a conforming case with three short drawers and a shaped apron, on
foliate-carved well shaped cabriole legs ending in ball and claw feet; excellent color and patination.

  1. Gorgeous! Particularly love the foot detail on those chairs.

    May I just hire you once I move into my Georgian manse (which I shall somehow find in Austin) someday & ask you to decorate everything? Great, thanks!

  2. I didn't know the Irish made furniture!!

  3. What an appropriate post for today!

  4. Lovely. Especially those chairs. My dining room makes me so sad - I really need a nice mahogany set like that!

  5. Thanks for the pictures of this fine Irish antiques to celebrate this day.

  6. lovely Irish antiques, guess that must be where the expression -"A wooden leg" comes from. I also thank you for your kind b-day wish.
    I am still floating from all the attention.

  7. What gorgeous pieces. I am a sucker for small tables and desks and clocks and .... Can never have too many.
