Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This impressive console table has a serpentine-fronted rectangular white marble top with a moulded edge, above a gilt foliate frieze. The top is raised on a pair of finely carved herm supports with foliate-carved scrolled feet put down on black marble plinth bases.
It is likely to have been amongst the furniture commissioned by William Wentworth FitzWilliam Hume Dick MP around 1870, at the time of the building of Humewood Castle, Co. Wicklow by the architect Albert Kimberley of Banbury.
A related Console Table featured amongst the work exhibited at the London Exhibition of 1862 is illustrated in J.B. Waring, ‘Masterpieces of Industrial Art and Sculpture at the International Exhibition’, 1863 (see E.T. Joy, Pictorial Dictionary of British Nineteenth Century Furniture Design, Woodbridge, 1972, p. 456).
