Over 350 lots of antique furniture, art, porcelain, mirrors and books of legal and political interest will come under the hammer at a house auction in Dublin on Thursday, December 29 at 12 noon.  Matthews Auctioneers of Oldcastle will hold an on the premises sale at Kildonan, No. 3 Eglinton Road. Furniture lots on offer include a George II chest of drawers, a William IV Irish serving table, a George III kneehole desk, an early Victorian dining table, an Edwardian inlaid side table, a satinwood display cabinet, a George IV two door bookcase, a Victorian gilded overmantle and a pair of Regency hall chairs.
