The Hunt Museum in Limerick will hold an Antique & Collectable Valuation Day on Sunday 22nd February from 12pm to 4.30 pm.
The event will be attended by experts from the Irish Antique Dealers Association who will shed light on items of Silver, Glass Porcelain, Clocks, Jewellery, Pictures, Furniture, Books and any other treasures.
Among the items discovered at previous Roadshows was an original George III document referring to the Freedom of Dublin granted to a member of the Brinsley Sheridan family.
Many pieces of jewellery were brought including a 2 carat diamond cushion cut ring which was worth a considerable sum of money. In silver some Limerick silver spoons by Thomas Walsh were found. Pottery and porcelain was bought in quantities and some interesting pieces of Dublin Delft and pieces by Donovan of Dublin.
The most unsuspecting items can be of value, so the Museum is encouraging people to root in their houses and bring items for valuation and identification. If it is impossible to bring an item, a photograph can be brought instead.
The cost is €10 for 5 items. Further details: firstname.lastname@example.org or 061-312960.
