  • CONTRASTING ANTIQUE SEATING STYLES

    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.
