    A selection of antique furniture is due to come under the hammer at Marshs sale in Cork on June 26.  The sale will be online but there is to be physical viewing at Rochfords Lane (off Grand Parade and South Mall in Cork city centre) next Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10.30 am to 7 pm on each day. Undoubtedly there will be much interest in eleven hide upholstered Cork 11-bar dining chairs from the Christian Brothers House at North Monastery in Cork. The nine chairs and two carvers are estimated at €2,000-€3,000. A set of six upholstered 9-bar Cork chairs from the same source has an estimate of €1,500-€2,000. Other lots of note are an important Irish Chippendale knee-hole writing desk (€2,000-€3,000); a Regency rosewood secretaire (€1,500-€2,000); a Georgian mahogany two door press, made in Cork (€800-€1,000) and a Georgian longcase clock with brass and silver dial by John Ottiwell, Limerick, 1766.  There is a collection of porcelain, books, mirrors, clocks and collectibles.
