    STAINED GLASS DESIGNS BY RICHARD KING AT FONSIE MEALY

    Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

    A collection of stained glass window designs by Richard King will come up at Fonsie Mealy’s sale of rare books, manuscripts and watercolours in Dublin on December 15.  Four coloured drawings, each measuring 105″ x 21″. were designed for St. Columba’s Church in Perth, Western Australia.  They are each estimated at 3,000-4,000. In addition there is a design for the War Memorial Chapel at Hawthorne, Western Australia entitled God the Father (2,000-3,000); Child of Eire designed for UCD (1,750-2,500) and a Nativity watercolour (1,500-2,000).

    After studies at the Dublin Metropolital School of Art Richard King joined the Harry Clarke studios in 1928. Clarke died in 1931 and in 1935 King became manager of the studio.  He set up on his own in 1940, working in stained glass and graphic design. His windows can be found in various locations in Ireland, at Boston College, Massachusetts and in Western Australia.

    UPDATE: The four coloured drawings sold at hammer respectively for 2,700, 2550,  2,500 and 2,700. God the Father made 2,100 and Child of Eire sold for 4,800.  The nativity watercolour sold for 2,100.
