Sunday auctions in Dublin tomorrow
Packing Fish by George Arthur Boyle, 19th century, €3,000-€5,000
Adam’s, St Stephen’s Green, Dublin is holding a Sunday Interiors Auction tomorrow at 11am when over 600 “interesting, unusual and stylish furniture, household furnishings,paintings and prints, china and glass, and fine silver” go under the hammer.
Among the highlights in the silver section is a rare piece of what is known as Cork Republican Silver. The circular tray was made by the Cork silversmith William Egan during the Civil War. In 1922, Cork was occupied by anti-Treaty forces. Egan, unable to send his work to the assay office in Dublin to be hallmarked, made his own Cork hallmark depicting a ship between two castles. The estimate for the tray is €10,000-€15,000.
The sale also includes Chinese and Japanese art including jade, bronzes, porcelain and ivory pieces.
Also tomorrow, starting at 1pm,
de Veres will auction the contents of Chantilly House, Rathmichael, Co Dublin, with about 500 lots including Georgian, Regency and Victorian furniture, paintings, mirrors and garden statuary. Highlights include Interior, Kilcoe by William Crozier (€8,000-€12,000); Packing Fish by George Arthur Boyle (€3,000-€5,000) and a George III Irish 18th-century hall table (€7,000-€10,000). Viewing today, ahead of both auctions.
