An exuberantly carved and brass inlaid Irish Regency period mahogany secretaire bookcase, c1820, from Cork. Apart from the typically Irish flamboyant lion paw feet, the use of divided rope twist columns is a feature of Cork furniture makers; combined with profuse cut brass inlay, these decorative flourishes create a spectacular decorative effect, in our experience, rarely surpassed.
