William MOORE a Dublin cabinet maker was listed in directories, first working at Abbey Street (1785-91, and then at Capel Street (1792-1814). He used fashionable satinwood embellished with marquetry inlays to create furniture that was similar to the work of the English architect & furniture designer Robert ADAM.
Before setting up his business in Dublin, William Moore trained in London with the prominent cabinet-making firm of Mayhew & Ince, and his marquetry is very similar to that on pieces from their workshop (such as the Duchess of Manchester's cabinet in th V&A's collection). His work was highly regarded and the marquetry and detailing on this card table are typical of his work.
