While bidding was selective for mediocre furniture, a George III Sheraton style mahogany sideboard consigned from a local house was the top entry at £3200.
The silver section included a small German parcel gilt beaker, c.1620, at £1200 and a set of four George III oval salt cellars with reeded bands and engraved crests, Dublin 1803, 10oz, which went to the Irish trade at a double-estimate £1050.
A piece of Victorian shellwork an octagonal example with heart shaped motif and forget-me-not decoration – retrieved from beneath a pile of plaster and debris of a demolished house was hardly in good condition but went to a collector against keen trade opposition at £1500.
