Pitch pine, granite cobbles and more...
Des O’sullivan on a salvage sale at Oranmore which is magpie heaven
An auction of architectural salvage is always of interest to a wide variety of imaginative collectors. Aidan Foley’s two-day sale of the stock of Bailey Gibson Interiors and Salvage at Oranmore, Co Galway, next weekend is likely to be no exception. The 1,200 lots will be sold over two days.
There are pitch pine beams and cast-iron stanchions from Boland’s Mills in Dublin, vintage light fittings, garden furniture and urns and a selection which ranges from French doors to whiskey barrels.
Garden enthusiasts and doer-uppers will be interested in cut kerb stones and old building stones, outdoor lighting, a fountain, statuary, reclaimed brick and granite cobbles.
Viewing in Oranmore is from 11am to 8pm next Thursday and Friday. The auction is on at 10.30am next Saturday and at noon on Sunday week.
Most lots will be sold without reserves.
