    THIS gilt side chair by John Trotter made a hammer price of €10,000 at Fonsie Mealy’s Killoughter House sale today. The chair was part of a set supplied to Leinster House in 1759 and was moved to Carton House in 1815. Originally from Berwickshire, John Trotter was cabinet maker to George II. His firm at Frith St. in Soho, London is recorded in directories and the Royal Accounts.

    UPDATE: The sale realised just under 500,000 on the hammer. The top lot was Travellers on a Woodland Path by James Arthur O’Connor which made 12,000. Caernarfon Bay by Kyffin Williams and Wooded Landscape by Gerrit van Hees each sold for 9,500. An Irish Georgian silver bullet teapot made 9,000 and a large Louis Vuitton travelling wardrobe trunk made 6,400.
