A collection of late entries to Hegarty’s auction on this Sunday, 27th February, make for very interesting viewing. A selection of 15 late 19th century/early 20th century of Chinese and Eastern porcelain and objects d’art added to an already substantial collection of furniture, silver, paintings and clocks make for a particulary electic viewing, which takes place on Friday & Saturday from 11am until 5pm & Sunday, day of sale from 11am to 4pm, when auction starts.
Some highlights for the discerning collector are a pair of Satsuma vases, a pair of mid 19th century silver-plated tazzas with Egyptian style decoration, a coromandel wood and silver ladies’ dressing box, a Regency rosewood and brass inlaid foldover card table, an Irish 18th century Georgian mahogany tallboy. A rare and unusual stick stand by James Hicks of Pembroke St., Dublin date circa 1890, a rosewood and mother of pearl inlaid drop-dial fusée wall clock, a pair of Irish cut glass decanters circa 1870 etc. In all just under 400 items will come under the hammer, the sale will begin on Sunday at 4pm and viewing is highly recommended. Ted Hegarty has noticed a substantial increase in attendance at the monthly auctions reflecting the value for money now available in the antiques market.
