The ancestral portraits, the giltwood pier mirror, the elaborate front door lock, and the Irish elk antlers – for generations these were ubiquitous in grand Irish houses and you’ll find them all at Adam’s Townley Hall sale on October 10.

Auction catalogues have a part to play in what we know as the University of Life. Typical is Helena Carlyle’s Note on the Irish elk antlers (€10,000-€15,000).
