Well-known Matthews Auctioneers of Oldcastle are to hold the largest auction ever to be held in Ireland this Saturday and Sunday. Comprising over 40,000 individual items removed for sale to Greenogue Industrial Estate, the auctioneer Damien Matthews said “It was an incredible feat of cataloguing - certainly one for the record books!”
The auction is by order of the receivers of Hugo Russell Ltd (interior and trade furnishers ) and other vendors. The goods have been divided into over 2,000 lots and include mirrors, lights, porcelain, china, rugs, crystal, silver, bronzes, some modern furniture, and other good quality items. Mr Matthews also said that “the auction represents an excellent buying opportunity for both private and trade buyers as most of the lots will be offered without reserve, whatever they make on the day”.
Also included in the auction will be the furnishings of The Dragon Bar, Dublin 2 (due to refurbishment ) and the estate of Mr James T Reilly by order of his executors - a small selection of antiques (about 200 lots ). All goods have been removed to Greenogue Industrial Estate (N7, Junction 4 ) for the auction and public viewing in the warehouse (which will be well signposted on viewing and auction days ) begins from 10am this Thursday March 26 onwards.
The auction itself commences at 12 noon on both Saturday and Sunday and the catalogue can be viewed online at www.matthewsauctionrooms.com Food will be available onsite for both auction days.
