A fine pair of late eighteenth century small scale console tables, each with a demi-lune top having segmental veneers of satinwood, with burr yew-wood borders, and tulipwood cross-banding, the frieze with central tablet, inlaid with a gadrooned oval and raised on square tapering legs.

This pair of tables can be attributed to the Dublin based cabinet maker John Wisdom for a number of reasons. The radiating segmental veneered satinwood and yew-wood tops relate closely to a table made by Wisdom for Newbridge House, Co. Dublin, circa 1790. The 1783-1814 accounts for Newbridge House record a payment made on 20 August 1790 for 'A table of satinwood from J. Wisdom - £5.13.9.' Other similar details are the cross-banding on the frieze and the square tapering satinwood legs. The quality of cabinet-making here present is certainly consistent with that of John Wisdom.
