- Why, I remember an Irish tabinet as Smiley gave her when first that venture in the brick- fields came up money; if that tabinet is as much as turned yet, why, I'll eat it. - "Orley Farm", Anthony Trollope.
- And up stairs she came, bristling with silk- the identical Irish tabinet, perhaps, which had never been turned- and conscious of the business which had brought her. - "Orley Farm", Anthony Trollope.
- Mrs. Smiley, though she had never been known to take a drop too much, did like to have things comfortable; and on this occasion she made an excellent meal, with a large pocket- handkerchief of Moulder's- brought in for the occasion- stretched across the broad expanse of the Irish tabinet. - "Orley Farm", Anthony Trollope.
