James Wray
14-16 James St South, Belfast BT2 7GA, Northern Ireland
After considerable searching, the gallery owners found their current premises in early 2007, a building initially used as a linen warehouse. Located in the historical Linen District a few steps away from Belfast’s City Hall the Gallery is discreetly located in James Street South opposite Niall McKenna’s award winning restaurant. Considerable time and effort was spent in turning this empty space into the only one of its kind in Ireland. The interior is sumptuous yet understated and elegant, and would not look out of place in London, Paris or New York where much of the influence comes from for its interior. Abstract work sits comfortably with 18th century masters where fine taste is the common denominator. Our archive and store houses one of Ireland’s most comprehensive private reference libraries dealing with Irish and British painters and sculptors. The classical proportions of the gallery have been admired by Christies and Bonhams, who have used the gallery for their ‘Irish Sale’ previews, which travel the cities of New York, Dublin and London. The gallery has been used for BBC interviews and important book launches. The owners, Alan Wray and Toby McMurray, are very well experienced in the field of Irish Art and are complimented by Pauline McLarnon who has almost 40 years experience previously with the Bell Gallery 1970-2007 and with James Wray & Co from 2007 to present. Pauline has known personally the many famous names of the past including Colin Middleton, Dan O’Neill and George Campbell. Alan has been buying and selling art and sculpture since 1990’s dealing mainly with the trade he has traveled Europe and further a field to meet buyers and sellers alike.

Brereton Jewellers was established in 1916 at 108 Capel Street, Dublin. Specialising in both new and antique jewellery the business has grown with the city of Dublin. John's youngest son Jack joined the business in the 1930's. By the early 1970's the third generation of Breretons, Jack's sons John and Liam, joined the company. Shortly afterwards they opened the company's second store on Chatham Street, Dublin. The third store, opposite the General Post Office (GPO) on Dublin's O'Connell Street, opened in 1986. Starting in 2003 the fourth generation joined the family business. Paul Brereton joined in 2003 and Derek Brereton started in 2009. Paul graduated as a gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America in 2006. Both of them now works closely with the the third generation in the running of the three unique stores. Our flagship store was opened on Grafton Street, Dublin, in early 2012, replacing Chatham Street, which is now closed. The opening of the Grafton Street store, which at one time was the most expensive high street in Europe, was an indication of the sound basis of the business as it occurred during the the worst recession in Irish history.

Mid Century Online
Oberstown, Lusk, County Dublin, K45 F209 , Ireland
On any given Saturday in 1983 my 10 year old self was out of bed at 6am and ready to make the long drive to a country antique shop or auction to buy antique furniture. Experience had taught me not to roll over and go back to sleep as my Father would only ever call me once before he left. When he was gone, he was gone and I would’ve missed my chance for another week. It’s not often someone my age has over 30 years of experience in any business but back in 1983 I had no idea that those 6am calls would allow me to turn my fascination for beautiful antique and mid century furniture into a thriving business. I learned through osmosis, surrounded by incredible furniture in my childhood home. Unwittingly, my apprenticeship happened while I was hanging out with my Dad on School holidays and Saturday mornings. I left school and then left Ireland to work and travel. At the age of 22 I returned to Ireland after spending time in Barcelona and it was then that I realised I didn’t have to wait until Saturday to live my dream. My Father’s antique furniture collections had long since outgrown our modest family home and were housed in a warehouse in Lusk, in north county Dublin. In order to pay for their upkeep, Historic Interiors (our sister company) was created to hire out props to Film and TV companies. I eventually took over Historic Interiors from my Father, Matt (he still has an active role in the business) and his core values of honesty, integrity and fanatical customer service are still the back bone of the business. Mid-Century Online is anchored in these principals today but came about accidentally almost 10 years ago. I had developed a huge personal interest in mid-century modern furniture and naively bought a few beautiful pieces (a Milo Baughman lounge chair, a Paul McCobb Sofa and an incredible burlwood and chrome sideboard from memory) for myself at an Auction in the US, not realising the vast cost of shipping them to Ireland. The only affordable way to get them home was to fill a container. Almost a year later, when I had finally filled that container, I had acquired many more pieces than my home could comfortably accommodate and Mid-Century Online was born. I buy with someone like myself in mind, someone with a discerning eye for design and quality that delights in the beautiful. I’ve discovered there are people like me all over the world and wherever you are, we can deliver your Mastercraft Sideboard, Arne Norell Sofa, Niels Moller dining chairs or anything else that piques your interest from our website without fuss and at a fair price straight to your door. I understand buying online can be daunting for some so I offer a cast iron guarantee that all products on the website come with a ‘cooling-off’ full money-back guarantee period of two weeks. You may recognise some of our clients here in Ireland, across Europe and the United States: Agent Provacateur (London), Airbnb European Headquarters (Dublin) Louise kennedy (London and Dublin), Harrods (London), Jaeger (London), Tommy Hilfiger (London, Munich & Doha), Soho House (London & Istanbul) and various Interior design firms in the USA. Check our returns policy so you know you can buy with confidence and then rest assured that we really care and if anything is a problem we will fix it. Thats a guarantee. https://mid-centuryonline.com/returns/

Peter Linden
Blackrock, Dublin, Ireland
Affter 30 years of retail trading in Fine Oriental Rugs I now work from home by appointment only, carrying a small stock of top quality Antique pieces and our beloved DOBAGs (subject to availability). I continue to work as a dealer, auction agent, broker, valuer and adviser. Cleaning of good Oriental rugs is undertaken by arrangement, generally limited to late April - early October when drying conditions are good. Liz Mansergh continues to undertake restoration work and her contact details can be seen herewith. Although I no longer have a retail gallery I continue in the pursuit of rare and beautiful antique rugs and weavings, preferably in original and unrestored condition. I have been trading in high end Oriental rugs for over 40 years and have learned to set the bar very high in order to obtain stock that is worth having. Natural colours are a must, as is condition – I stubbornly search for immaculate pieces with a minimum of restoration or alterations - a real "needle in the haystack" mission. I look for heirlooms (this is where the word originates) that tick all the boxes, to be lovingly minded by generations to come. If you have a rug that you want to sell or value, please begin by sending me any relevant info plus a couple of good colour images - ideally one showing a corner tucked over so I can see the back of the weave and the front side all in one. I only exhibit my collection once or twice a year and all customers on our database will be told of future events. If you wish to join that list, please email me your full address details to lindorient@gmail.com Our internationally renowned website www.peterlinden.com remains active and regularly updated as before. All new stock acquisitions are listed under Current Stock, choose from 5 different subsections. WE SHIP TO ANY LOCATION IN THE WORLD - TAX ADVANTAGES FOR BUYERS FROM OUTSIDE THE EU APPLY.
