A native of Dublin, Douglas Bennett was educated at Wesley College and the National College of Art. An internationally acknowledged authority on Irish silver, about which he has published three books and lectured widely, he is secretary of the Company of Goldsmiths of Dublin and is chairman of Douglas Bennett and Associates, a professional fine art valuation company. He is an extra-mural lecturer with the National University of Ireland and with the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers. Apart from researching the history of his native city, the restoration of horse-drawn farm machinery occupies much of his leisure time.
