Decorative capitals with Killarney floriation


hand drawn decorative capitals with ornamentation based on the floral patterning of killarney inlaid wood furniture.1 i first encountered this signature irish woodworking style in 2019 at the muckross house in killarney, co. kerry while on a trip to visit past hometowns of my grandmother’s relatives. letters are adorned with shamrocks, thistles, and roses modified in a slovak modernist geometric style.
