    TWO DAY BANK HOLIDAY ONLINE SALE

    Wednesday, May 27th, 2020

    Doneraile based Aidan Foley, who quickly moved to an online only model when the pandemic lockdown began in Ireland, will hold a two day sale on May 30 and 31. Around 350 lots are to come under the hammer on each day. He reports that successful online auctions make more work for the auctioneers.  There is more demand for pre-sale reports and afterwards lots have to be packaged and despatched, sometimes crated. One lot from his sale at the beginning of May went to Sri Lanka and buyers and collectors registered from around the globe.

    The upcoming auctions on easy live will include boxed sets of promotional discs sent to RTE’s Lorcan Murray.  Items from his extensive collection of rock and pop memorabilia have already featured at several of Aidan Foley’s auctions and garnered much interest. Another upcoming lot certain to arouse great interest is a pencil sketch of a river scene by John Butler Yeats estimated at €800-1,200. It is from an artists sketch book purchased at a Yeats family dispersal auction.

    Lot 73 is this metal postbox with P and T logo (200-300). UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR 320 AT HAMMER
