Adam’s is selling some of the contents of Deepwell, the Victorian Blackrock, Co Dublin home that was once owned by the late John Reihill of Tedcastle Oil. It was sold earlier this year for €8 million. David Britton of Adam’s said the buyers of the house had purchased the furniture in all the principal rooms but silver, porcelain and other small items from the house will be included in the Adam’s Interiors Sale on Sunday, May 11th.

The Deepwell lots include an Irish George III silver two-handled oval tea tray, made in Dublin in 1795 by Thomas Jones (€4,000-€6,000); an Irish George I giltwood wall mirror (€2,500-€3,500); and a Victorian silver and green enamelled travel clock, made in London in 1894, by Percy Edwards & Co, (€400-€600).

The Deepwell Collection of paintings, tapestries and sculpture, collected by two generations of the Reihill family, will be included in the Adam’s Important Irish Art auction on May 28th.
