Top Quality Rare 19th Century Marquetry Inlaid Irish Killarney Work Box or Table Killarneyware, the distinctive style of furniture produced in Killarney and the Gap of Dunloe during the mid-19th century. Killarney furniture is prized by collectors. It is of a distinctive and readily recognizable style, inlaid with scenes from local beauty spots and buildings like Muckross Abbey, Glena Cottage, Muckross House and Ross Castle. The use of Arbutus wood is typical of Killarney. Though not a native Irish species, arbutus wood grows abundantly in and around Killarney. It is light coloured and close grained and has been highly valued for centuries in Ireland. The tradition began with small items such as card cases, snuff boxes and chessboards aimed at the considerable tourist trade of the times. The seasonable nature of the trade led to the production of much more ambitious pieces of furniture such as work boxes and tables, cabinets, bureaus and davenports.
