In ‘Irish Furniture: Woodwork and Carving in Ireland from the Earliest Times to the Act of Union – The Knight of Glin and James Peill’ (The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, Yale University Press, 2007), a mahogany tripod table with a semi talon foot is illustrated, dated circa 1740-60, probably Irish (p.155, fig. 212).

A mahogany side table is also illustrated in ‘Irish Furniture: The Knight of Glin and James Peill’, dated circa 1740, which has similar ‘muscular’ type carving (ibid, p.231, fig.109).
