Footnotes

  • The marquetry panel to the splats of the present chairs feature a similar eagle device which corresponds to those on a set of four George II Irish walnut and marquetry chairs with possible provenance from the Brabazon family, Earls of Meath (see: The Knight of Glin and James Peill, Irish Furniture, 2007, p. 208, pls. 16). The style of the marquetry here also closely relates to that exhibited on other recorded Irish furniture including a chair from Kilkenny Castle and the Blessington Commode, illustrated ibid., pls. 56, 65 and 66.
