CONTENTS FROM THE KELLY COLLECTION AT 24 FITZWILLIAM SQUARE, DUBLIN

The James Adam auction of the Kelly Collection brought in over half a million euro on June 21.  The sale of contents from the elegant interior of a stately Georgian home at 24 Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin, attracted large numbers of buyers.  There was some disappointment when the top lots failed to sell in these recessionary times but buyers were out in force for some of the less expensively estimated lots. The contents were on view at Fitzwilliam Square, the sale took place at the James Adam salesroom on St. Stephen’s Green.

There were posts about the sale on antiquesandartireland.com on June 7 and June 17.  Here is a selection of some lots which were sold, (click on any image to enlarge it):
