A collection of furniture from the 1920s and 30s has been sold on the auction block for the first time.
Ashley was selling furniture at a house on Dublin’s southside.
It is not clear what her items were.
Ashleys house on Castle Street in Dublin was a favourite haunt for many, and was the home of the Irish singer, poet and writer.
It has sold for nearly £4,000 at auction.
“It’s a very exciting time to be in the furniture business, it’s the best part of your career, you have all the time in the world and the money,” she said.
The furniture in question is a piece of furniture which dates back to the 1930s, when Ashley and her husband, George, lived on Castle Road.
“They had a great time and the property was lovely, so they bought a big house in the city for themselves,” she told The Irish News.
“The idea was that it was a great place to be, and they lived there for five years.”
George wanted a big family, and we didn’t have any children, so he built a big shed, which he called the shed of his dreams.
It was a very comfortable place.
I have the same shed in my bedroom, I can see it today.
“Ashley said she kept the shed open to let in sunlight and sunlight reflected through the walls of the house.”
I think it’s really beautiful.
I’m very proud of the shed,” she added.
Ash’s house, which was built in 1926, has been on Castle street for a number of years, with many of the furnishings in it being from the same period.
It sold for €2,200 on Wednesday, but the proceeds will go to a charity.”
This house is one of those houses that has been sitting around for so long,” said Ashley.”
If someone came and bought it, I think they would be really happy, and it would really bring back the memories.
“The sale is just the second time the collection has been up for auction.
In 2015, a collection of clothing, accessories and books was sold for more than €6,000, and the auction house is now holding a second sale.”
We are just so excited to sell our collection of pieces and hopefully raise money for a good cause,” she explained.
The sale will be held on February 26 at the Fine Art Centre of Ireland, Dublin, with proceeds to be donated to the Irish Breast Cancer Society.
