Description / Expertise

A very fine marquetry Harewood demi-lune console table by William Moore of Dublin. The top has radiating paterae within a broad satinwood border enclosing alternating flowerheads. Crossbanded in tulipwood, boxwood and ebony as decoration. The frieze with simulated fluting; raised on square tapering legs inlaid with bellflower pendants and headed by oval panels of yew wood.

William Moore was a well known 18th Century cabinet maker. He is believed to have had a residence or workshop on Inns Quay and Charles Street Dublin. It is thought that Moore went through the School of Landscape and Ornament drawing at the Dublin Society Drawing School in Dublin 1768. After finishing in Dublin, Moore went to London where he was apprenticed to cabinet makers, Mayhew & Ince. John Mayhew and William Ince were the most significant cabinet makers in England at the time and had worked with Robert Adams.
Mayhew & Ince and Robert Adams had worked on a number of houses together such as Croome Court, Derby House and Adelphi. Their prestigious list of clients included the Prince of Wales, Duke of Beaufort and the Duke of Devonshire. On Moores return to Dublin in 1777 after spending a short time in Waterford, he was encouraged to carry on business as a cabinet-maker in the capital. In October 1779 the Faulkner’s Dublin Journal carried the following add;
William Moore, Inlayer and cabinetmaker, No 22 Abbey Street(Late of the city of Waterford) begs leave to acquaint the nobility and gentry, he intends carrying on the business in all it branches – Any order shall be carefully attended to and the hopes for his study to please and long experience at Messrs Mayhew and Ince of London, to meet the approbation of those who shall please to honour him with their commands – N.B few large pieces of elegant inlaid work can be seen. An apprentice is wanted, a lad of genius for drawing, none else need apply.
