    PIER TABLES IN THE MANNER OF WILLIAM MOORE AT SOTHEBY’S

    Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022
    Pair of George III giltwood and marquetry demi-lune pier tables, circa 1775, in the manner of William Moore of Dublin

    These tables come up as lot 39 at Sotheby’s sale of the collection of the late Sir Joseph Hotung in London on December 8 with an estimate of £12,000-£18,000. The pier tables are believed to have belonged to the Earls of Grandison, and if indigenous to their estates at Dromana, Co. Waterford were likely supplied to George Mason-Villiers, 2nd Earl Grandison PC (1751–1800). The 2nd Earl died without sons and thus the title became extinct in 1800.
