Irish style furniture:

Very few pieces of art of the early oak furniture, made before the 17th century, survived because of the burning and pillaging of many of the invaders of the Irish isle.
Irish furniture made during the early eighteenth century has low relief carvings of eagles' heads, rosettes, winged birds lions' masks, goblin heads, scallop shells and baskets of flowers.Shell motifs are common on chairs, settees, and tables. Plainer Irish furniture and often more elegant type existed concurrently.
By the late 18th Century, when Irish furniture followed London fashions closely, Mahogany and satinwood from the West Indies and South America reached Ireland. The Irish Georgian furniture may also have deep carvings of masks along with hairy paw feet.

Many provincial pieces of Irish furniture were made using indigenous woods like oak, ash and pine.

Due to its affordability and easily accessed wood by ordinary Irish folk..............pine was the wood of choice for most Irish Country people.

Many 20th Century pine pieces survive to this day and are produced for rustic or farmhouse kitchens in Ireland, to this day.

But, 19th Century pieces are very rare and only a few have survived.
