The moulded top raised over two short graduated drawers and three long drawers, all with brass escutcheons and turned pulls terminating on turned bun foot. Robert Strahan, Dublin, Ireland:- Founded in 1776 as a cabinet maker, Robert Strahan & Co. grew to become one of Ire-land's premiere furniture designers, exhibiting at The Great Industrial Exhibition of 1853 in Dublin. A walnut table, exhibited at the second London International Exhibition of 1862, showcased their talent for both design and manufacture. Bringing together mar-quetry, scrolling foliage, masks, strap work and cartouches in a piece of some merit; A fine piece displaying the influence of Thomas Hope and Richard Bridgens, it was illus-trated in the Art Journal Illustrated Catalogue for the London exhibition. Designing and manufacturing for the Office of Public Works, the firm gained the reputa-tion for high quality furniture and were commissioned to design and manufacture for some of the great Irish country houses such as Doneraile Court, Co. Cork and Lisnavagh, Co. Carlow. The Firm started out trading from 10-11 Chancery Lane. Moving forward 39 years to 1815 and the firm had expanded in to 24-25 Henry Street. In 1845 it expanded further still into 5 Leister Street. In 1870 the firm moved to Abbey Street trading under the family name until 1969.
