Catalogue Note

The Jacksons were a family of carvers, gilders and looking glass manufacturers established by Thomas Jackson at no.5 Essex Bridge in Dublin from the 1740s, and these brackets would have been made by his sons James and Richard Jackson who took over the business in the late 18th century.  A similar pair bearing their label is in Glin Castle, County Limerick, Ireland, illustrated in The Knight of Glin and James Peill, Irish Furniture (London 2007), pp.158 and 169, figs. 231-2.
