    A c1800 bright cut Limerick silver sauce ladle by  William Fitzgerald  UPDATE: THIS WAS UNSOLD

    Limerick silver is rare and not always easy to come by so there should be much interest in a private collection of Limerick silver spoons at the timed online James Adam At Home sale which runs until February 27. They are from the workshops of makers  William Fitzgerald, George Halloran, Robert O’Shaughnessy, Joseph Johns, Patrick Connell, Samuel John, Maurice Fitzgerald  and William Ward. It is downright unusual to find such a gathering of known makers names from Limerick in one sale.  Lots 72 to 84 carry estimates ranging from €400 to €3,000.  There is also a mid 18th century silver bowl by George Hodder of Cork and a George III silver bowl by James le Bas of Dublin.  The catalogue is online and timed bidding is already underway.

    A set of 12 c1780 teaspoons by Patrick Connell, Limerick. UPDATE: THESE SOLD FOR 1,400 AT HAMMER
