    This old Irish butter churn is among the lots at Victor Mee’s online two day sale of Irish vernacular, pine furniture and pub collectibles on October 20 and 21. There will be a total of 961 lots. Irish vernacular furniture was built using
    inexpensive materials for use everyday and often carved by the homeowner. There is kitchen furniture, collectible items and spongeware, as well as some furniture and collectible pieces from a local pub and Victorian apothecary. Spongeware is the craft of using paint to decorate plain mugs bowls and plates with a sponge or potato cut to shapes of flowers, leaves hearts and animals.
