    Oval centre table estimated at just €400-€600. UPDATE: THIS MADE 600 AT HAMMER

    Just like Patrick Kavanagh you might meet your object of desire on Raglan Road on an autumn day.  In the case of the poet it was a lady whose dark hair would weave a snare which he might one day rue. In yours and mine, more prosaically, it could just be something from the timed auction that de Veres is running at 25 Raglan Road until September 19. The auctioneers say this entire sale offers a window into the mind of an interior designer  and that this is an opportunity to pick up pieces as new. The mix of antique, modern and contemporary furniture is complemented by lighting, prints, mirrors, soft furnishings, porcelain and household items.  One of the most expensively estimated lots is an Andrew Martin sofa (€1,000-€2,000).  Mirrors, chairs, curtains, dressing tables, lamps, lined curtains, chests of drawers and porcelain are all very reasonably estimated, many at under €300.  There will be viewing at the house next Friday, Saturday and Sunday week.  The catalogue is online now.
