    These contrasting settees were quickly snapped up at Mealy’s auction in Mallow Castle, Co. Cork on April 5.   The Regency period carved giltwood settee on the left made a hammer price of 6,500.  It had been in the Kilkenny Castle sale in 1935.

    The ornate Japanese seat on the right made a hammer price of 5,800.  The back is profusely carved with scrolling dragons, the hinged seat is flanked with arm rests in the form of a dragon and it is just over five feet wide.  Click on either image to enlarge.
