Over the last 75 years, Mealys Fine Art have brought to the market some of the most interesting and unique pieces of fine art and antiques that Ireland has ever seen on behalf of their extensive list of clients.
These sales have included the contents of Abbeyleix House for the Viscount DeVesci; Garretstown House for their Highnesses Prince and Princess Guirey; Abington Rectory for Sir George and Lady Earle and Dunbrody Park for Lord and Lady Donegall.
Closer to home they have overseen the sale of the contents of familiar houses such as Mount Loftus, Kellsgrange, The Grange, Uppercourt Manor, Brownsbarn and Shankill Castle. They hold quarterly Fine and Decorative Art Sales of the finest in luxury personal property, from quality paintings and period furniture to silver, porcelain, jewellery, fine wines and whiskeys, vintage fashion, and a myriad of other assorted decorative items from Irish estates. These high value sales are juxtaposed with quarterly interiors and clearance sales (often the contents of attics and basements, together with liquidation stock ).
With spacious new premises on the Kilkenny Road in Castlecomer, Mealys Fine Art are poised to expand their operations in the coming years. The first major auction of the year is their Spring Interiors and Clearance Sale — aka the no reserve sale! 90 per cent of the 500 items will go under the hammer without reserve, i.e. they will be sold for whatever price is bid on the day.
Unrivalled bargains abound no doubt — the perfect retail therapy for those feeling the blues of the recession. The sale includes both modern and antique furniture, paintings and prints, silver plateware, carpets and rugs, light fittings, curios and oddities and other miscellaneous personal property. Don't miss this great opportunity to find the best of bargains and who knows what else.
Viewing takes place on Sunday between 2pm and 5pm and all day Monday. There will also be limited viewing on the morning of the sale. A fully illustrated catalogue is available at www.mealys.com For further details, contact George Gerard Mealy on 0564400942.
