Hi,

I just went through some old reference books as I knew I had seen that engraving before, it is the device of Fitzgerald, Duke of Leinster. It was noted on a writing set box made by James Fray and assayed in Dublin in 1817.
So it looks like the attribution of provincial Irish could well be correct.
