Collectors will find rich pickings among a selection of fine antique furniture, art, jewellery, fine wine, Asian art and European works of art during three days of sales at Sheppard’s in Durrow next week.
This is a series of sales with something for most tastes, with many lots at reasonably estimated prices.
The sales kick off on Tuesday at 10am with 750 lots including rugs, handbags, jewellery, fur coats, sculpture, a private collection of modestly-estimated English and Irish watercolours, and a good choice of antique furniture including mirrors, chairs, cabinets, lighting and lamps.
This will be followed on Wednesday at 10am with a selection that includes Chinese ceramics and bronzes, silver, porcelain, antique furniture and a small section on wines and spirits.
The auction series, with nearly 1,600 lots in total, will finish up with a classic art evening auction of just 60 lots next Thursday at 7pm.
There are Irish, British and continental works ranging from a lake scene by George Barrett, and a portrait by Hugh Douglas Hamilton, to a Dutch landscape by Hendrik Pieter Koekkoek (1843-1927); an important landscape by the English artist Claude Francis Barry (1883-1970); a work from the French Impressionist School and an Italian portrait by a follower of Lorenzo Lotto.
The sale will include work by Markey Robinson, Arthur Maderson, Mildred Anne Butler and Augustus Burke.
There is viewing from 10am to 5pm today, tomorrow and Monday.
