CASTLE BLUNDEN The 'residue' contents of Castle Blunden are now coming under the hammer. The sale is about to happen. We look on with mixed emotions at the break up of our family home into the articles of furniture, pictures, glass, tea sets, kettles, typewriters, books, gumboots, presses, tables and all sorts of other things - including our beloved doll's house... all for sale and about to enjoy a new life! Of course it is sad to see these things go - we are emotionally attached to them and the place through growing up at Castle Blunden. The handover to a nephew meant we girls of the twentieth century were expected to seek our fortunes in other places. Our generation was neatly skipped over. Four of the six Blunden girls now live elsewhere - scattered to the four winds: Jane to Mongolia, Caroline to China, Lizzie to Australia and Fiona to America. Our stories and careers are summarised in this catalogue. Caroline is now on the London Advisory Board of Opera Prelude that supports young singers. Fiona restores and gilds antiques with gold leaf. Lizzie offers private homes to families to holiday by the sea. Jane is launching her new career as an artist in California with abstract drawings that express more than words. The Blundens arrived in Kilkenny in the 17th century. Castle Blunden was built in the mid 18th century. The family integrated and survived through the 18th century by marrying heiresses, and through the 19th century's turbulent times by being honest and decent - keeping their heads down and playing chess. Pioneering spirit is never dampened. Young William Blunden - later to become 4th Baronet - set sail for New Zealand in the 1870s. Trained as a surgeon, he married into one of New Zealand's greatest settler families - that of Ernest Rutherford, the father of modern physics. Sir William and his wife Florence Caroline and their children returned to Kilkenny at the start of the 20th century.



CASTLE BLUNDEN Tragedy struck in 1923 when their eldest son Jack died of 'flu. His father - the surgeon - predeceased him by three days leaving the family with double death duties. The next generation - our father Sir William - saw Castle Blunden revitalised under the capable hands of our mother Pamela Purser, only daughter of John Purser, Professor of Engineering at Trinity College, Dublin. War services accomplished in the Royal Navy, Sir William - known as Bill - stayed on in the navy for a decade, leaving his wife Pam to raise six little girls and run the farm. She did a great job pulling the place together and kept things going until her death in 2017. She understood how to manage a large house and decorate it with a light and elegant touch. Today we have no more choice to remain or revisit the house than the doll's house or the gramophone. However we hope the grandfather clock in its distressed state will tick on... and the wind-up gramophone - that once played Mozart from a kitchen chair placed in the middle of the pond while our parents skated around it on thin ice - will play again. There is magic in the shapes you can see in the old mahogany cupboards reflecting the love and care put into these pieces, and we hope that people will once again rate and value such craftsmanship. This sale also reflects the thinking and choices of the Blunden family in the objects gathered over three centuries. We are proud to belong to this pioneering and energetic family including the Pursers - whose artistic influence was absorbed in the culture and lifestyle we led at Castle Blunden. The great-aunt Pursers in their blue stockings would drive in the Austin A40 from Dublin bringing us exotic presents such as Chinese umbrellas. No sweets but lots of lovely books. The collection of books also represent the choices of our


ancestors. It is sad when a family library is broken up as it represents more than books. You may open a book and out flutters a letter from a bygone era. The leather bindings with embossed gold lettering speak volumes before you even open the book. You don't know what you are going to discover. Sheppards have brought together this residue sale in the kindest way letting the pieces speak for themselves. People ask us "Is it all gone?" The answer is "Almost". Now the humbler more interesting pieces that contributed to the charm and atmosphere of Castle Blunden are being sold under the hammer. Who knows what the future will bring. We hope you will enjoy each piece as it is bid. It comes to you with our fond love and blessing - hard to part with and yet... it holds the spirit of Castle Blunden - without limits or boundaries. Thank you for your interest. Jane and Caroline Blunden

CAROLINE AND JANE Caroline spent five years working and travelling around the world in the late sixties before working for the iconic interior designer Christopher Gibbs in London. She went on to study art history at Edinburgh University and was awarded a scholarship to study Chinese painting at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing shortly after the Cultural Revolution. She co-authored Cultural Atlas of China with Mark Elvin - published in 1983 - now translated into nine languages. For the past three decades Caroline has curated contemporary Chinese painting exhibitions and currently is on the 'Vetting Committee' of Masterpiece - one of the world's leading international art fairs. She is involved with 'Opera Prelude' promoting young singers and divides her time between London and Kilkenny. Jane worked as a journalist following world travels with her twin sister and a cousin. She wrote on China for The Irish Times in 1978 as this country opened up to foreign travel. She later worked for American ABC News as assistant to Pierre Salinger - former press secretary to President John F. Kennedy. Then followed her search for wild horses in Mongolia which led her to writing three editions of a guide book titled 'Mongolia' (available online). Her film work includes a documentary on the History of Flamenco... around that time she restored a building in rural France and set up a cafe. Jane's main interest now is to produce line drawings - her series on Brexit will shortly be printed in California in numbered editions. She has kept a diary since an early age and is a keen nature conservationist.



ELIZABETH Elizabeth Blunden has spent the last 35 years living in Far North Queensland, Australia. Armed with a degree in Botany from Trinity College, Dublin and a short crash course in cooking at Ballymaloe, Lizzie, with her husband Nick Marshall, bought 80 acres of land at Helenvale, near Cooktown, to start their tourism business. They set about building Mungumby Lodge with 10 cabins to welcome intrepid travellers to this very remote area and provide a memorable place to stay. This was a true Aussie 'pioneering' challenge as the property had no connection to mains electricity or the phone for the first three years and all building materials had to be trucked in over miles of pot-holed gravel roads. It was, however, in a beautiful position at the base of what is called 'the Big Tableland' surrounded by woodland and creeks with natural swimming pools. Sir David Attenborough would come to stay at the Lodge with his production crew to film part of 'First Life' in the area. While the Marshalls no longer owned the property at the time of his stay, it was something they had always hoped would happen to raise awareness of how special this part of Far North Queensland is. Mungumby Lodge provided a wonderful lifestyle and an idyllic place for children to grow up but due to the difficulties with schooling, the Marshall family had moved to Cairns. Here Lizzie and Nick started on a new tourism venture, Cairns Holiday Homes, selecting some great family holiday houses to rent to visitors who wanted more than just a hotel room. www.cairnsholidayhomes.com.au The children have all grown up and in true Blunden spirit have set out on adventures of their own, but Lizzie and Nick have no immediate intentions of leaving what is undeniably one of the most beautiful parts of Queensland.


Important gilded frame, Farmleigh House, Phoenix Park, Dublin. Restoration by Fiona Blunden on behalf of a private client.


FIONA The youngest of the six Blunden girls, Fiona Blunden attended Glengara Park School, studied French and Art History in Paris before running the cafĂŠ in Kilkenny Castle. Travelling to London in the 1990s, she apprenticed with a gilder and furniture restorer and then went to work for Christine Leder, a framer and gilder for West End galleries, painters and artists. In 1994, Fiona went back to Ireland and soon after moved to the United States, with her husband John MacGovern. They settled on a small farm near Woodstock, Vermont. She opened a gilding studio www.giltbyassociation.net nearby, in the Bridgewater Mill, Bridgewater, Vermont, where she works today. Her clients include museums, private collectors, antique dealers and interior designers.
