Catalogue Note

These fine altar-sticks stood before the great fireplace at Yeats's castle in Galway, Thoor Ballylee (see lot 82), his family's country home for much of the 1920s. This exact model appears in the 1920 Pearson-Page Catalogue. The company were known for copies of historic metalwork as well as producing work in an 'antique' styles in brass, copper and iron. See their July 1920 Catalogue, section 3, page 1, item no. 3198.
