  • KILLARNEY BOX IN NEWCASTLEWEST AUCTION

    The Killarney wood box at auction in Newcastlewest. (Click on image to enlarge).  UPDATE: THIS MADE 300 AT HAMMER.

    A 19th century Killarney wood box is among more than 600 lots to go under the hammer at O’Donovans in Newcastlewest, Co. Limerick on November 10.  There is no reserve on the piece, which is estimated by auctioneer Patrick O’Donovan to make 250-350.

    Killarney furniture, with its distinctive arbutus wood inlay, comes in all shapes and sizes.  There is a short note about Killarney furniture on the front page of this website. This box is profusely inlaid in classical Killarney style and would make a bargain in that price range, even in these recessionary times.
