Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The demi-lune radial segmented top cross banded in harewood with ebony and box line stringing and with a central inlaid satinwood fan with floral paterae; and over a panelled frieze in the neoclassical style with swagged harebells and oval fan paterae; raised on square & tapering legs with inlaid draped harebells and terminating in spade feet.
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.
