The form of this table with an elegantly serpentine shaped frieze and gadrooned scrolls flanking a shell is a decorative feature appearing on a number of Irish tables of this period. A similarly conceived table, possibly from Clanwilliam House, 86 St. Stephen's Green, Dublin, is illustrated by the Knight of Glin and James Peill, Irish Furniture, Yale, 2007, p. 230, fig. 101.
