    One of the more unusual lots at R.J. Keighery’s sale at the City Auction Rooms in Waterford on October 23 is a late 19th century Chinese dish of nuts and seeds.  The finely modelled group of eight Yixing nuts and seeds carry means like fertility and good luck.  Keighery’s say they are from the colleciton of the late Alvin Wilson of Hong Kong and Oxford and estimate the lot at 450-550.

    The sale will feature pub mirrors and signs, a collection of vintage model cars, porcelain, jewellery. antique furniture and a Waterford Crystal claret decanter.
