An exceptionally fine pair of card tables indeed, the base is absolutely sublime, each table has a pair of conical hand carved pillars which have been hollowed out with floral tops tapering up towards the foldable surfaces. The front of each table is ornately carved with Georgian Irish acanthus leaves and shells.
These pieces were made by the genius that is Robert Strahan. From Dublin Ireland and Founded in 1776 as a cabinet maker.
Robert Strahan & Co. grew to become one of Ireland's premiere furniture designers, exhibiting at The Great Industrial Exhibition of 1853 in Dublin. A walnut table, exhibited at the second London International Exhibition of 1862, showcased their talent for both design and manufacture.
Bringing together marquetry, scrolling foliage, masks, strap work and cartouches in a piece of some merit; A fine piece displaying the influence of Thomas Hope and Richard Bridgens, it was illustrated in the Art Journal Illustrated Catalogue for the London exhibition.
Designing and manufacturing for the Office of public works, they gained the reputation for high quality furniture and were commissioned to design and manufacture for some of the great Irish country houses such as Doneraile Court, Co. Cork and Lisnavagh, Co. Carlow.
The Firm started out trading from 10-11 Chancery Lane. Move forward 39 years to 1815 and the firm had expanded in to 24-25 Henry Street. In 1845 it expanded further still into 5 Leister Street. In 1870 the firm moved to Abbey Street trading under the family name until 1969.
In terms of the condition, they are both really quite fine, there will be normal patina marks here and there from honest age and genuine use, the oxblood baize has some ware, nothing you would not expect from 200-year-old pieces of furniture, mostly I would say they are in fine order and would look amazing in any setting.
