The Estate of Pauline Ireland

Doyle is honored to auction artwork, furniture and decorative arts from the Estate of Pauline Ireland. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Pauline was educated at Brooke Hill, Chatham Hall and Hollins College where she majored in Music. In addition to music, Pauline was passionate about art, culture and philanthropy. She served on volunteer groups, Boards and advisory committees of the Junior League, St. Luke's Church, Advent Episcopal Church, the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Alys Stephens Center and many others. A gracious hostess, Pauline loved celebration and was known for her memorable parties. She was also an adventurous traveler and was as comfortable camping on wilderness rivers in the West as she was staying at the St. Regis Hotel. Her collection reflects her sophisticated eye for quality and unique sense of style.

Among the offerings from the Estate are an early 18th century Continental Baroque black-japanned and parcel-gilt cabinet on stand decorated with chinoserie designs in the manner of Stalker and Parker (est. $2,000-4,000) and a German porcelain dinner service and tablewares in the 'Indian' pattern marked with the Meissen blue crossed swords (est. $5,000-7,000). An engraving by Italian artist Canaletto (1697-1768) depicts a View of a Town on a River Bank (est. $4,000-6,000).

Property from the Estate of Pauline Ireland will be offered in two June sales: Old Master & 19th Century Paintings, Drawings & Sculpture on June 3 (View Lots) and English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts on June 11 (View Lots).

Silver

The auction offers a strong section devoted to English and Continental silver with examples by prominent makers spanning the 18th through 20th centuries. Among the Georgian silver are pieces by such makers as Philip Rundell, Paul Storr and Joseph Angel, highlighted by a set of twenty-four George III dinner plates by Naphtali Hart, London, 1810, from the Property of an International Collector (est. $15,000-25,000).

Other notable offerings include a George III tea urn by Thomas Holland, London, 1806, from the Estate of Miriam K.

The original design for this form by Paul de Lamerie is dated 1752 and a pair of tea caddies and sugar box are in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, gifted by Alan and Simone Hartman.
