Many Irish collectors prefer a more florid and opulent style of decoration than this relatively austere piece of furniture, so a late 19th century Louis XV style, kingwood, marquetry upright cabinet (estimate £5,000-£7,000) is sure to have its admirers. A pair of Victorian Louis XIV-style boulleshaped rectangular, folding top card tables, with gilt metal mounts (£3,000-£5,000), should also attract attention.
