A pair of large scale carved mahogany serving tables of particularly fine quality and well-marked timber; the D shaped tops with gadrooned edge supported on cabriole front legs with acanthus leaf scroll carved knees, terminating in paw feet. The triangular pedimented backs flanked by carved bold palmette quadrants, and the tops fitted for resting plates.Attributed to George and Samuel Gillington.Provenance: Favour Royal House, Co. Tyrone
The Gillington brothers, George and Samuel, are recorded at various addresses and in various partnerships in Dublin from 1815 to 1838. Their warehouse was in Abbey Street and George Gillington's trade card begged it 'to be observed that his house is in the narrow part of Abbey Str.' The exactness of this location, was probably to differentiate their workshops from confusion with the neighboring cabinet firm of Mack & Gibton, which produced furniture of a similar high quality.
Favour Royal was first granted to the Earl of Londonderry in 1610. However, the original 17th century building burnt down in 1823, at which time the present house was built for John Corry Moutray by the architect John Hargrave. It is a Tudor gothic mansion consisting of two stories with low-pitched gables and large rectangular windows, having elaborate gothic tracery. Since 1976 when the last member of the Moutray family died, the house has been vacant and much of the original desmesne, which lies in the Blackwater valley, has been sold.
