Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The carved detailing on this settee is particularly Irish in character. The design of the settee's leg with the Green Man face to the knee and the double knuckle to the lion paw foot are both idiosyncratically Irish as is the free flowing carving of the lion masks on the arms. It is this use of imaginative carved ornament on an outherwise austere piece of furniture which is the hallmark of the best Irish George II furniture. Related examples of Irish Georgian furniture with carved faces can be found in Irish Furniture by The Knight of Glin and James Peill.
