    A model of the Nellie Fleming of Youghal, lost with all hands in February 1936. UPDATE: THIS MADE 800 AT HAMMER

    With everything from Capuchin annuals, oak furniture from the old Fawcett’s Hotel in Ballycotton which came to a house in Cork around 1949, a fine set of Cork 11-bar chairs, an English silver lidded jug inscribed in 1877 from Jane, Countess of Bantry and a model of the Nellie Fleming of Youghal, lost with all hands in 1936,  the sale at Lynes and Lynes in Carrigtuohill on March 25 is redolent of Cork in days of yore.  There is more memorabilia in a silver salver by Egans of Cork inscribed: Presented to Henry St. J. Glynn on leaving Skibbereen by the members of the Choral Society, Nov. 1944″.  Each of these silver pieces is estimated at €500-€700.

    A 19th century carved oak Black Forest sideboard is estimated at €1,000-€1,500 and the selection of antique furniture is good. Most of it is fairly affordable. Unusual collectibles include a pair of tractor seat stools, about 30 old stoneware beer bottles, 142 Parker biros in original cases emblazoned with logos from  Aer Lingus, Ryanair, Black & Decker and many more companies and a 19th century rocking horse in need of restoration.  There will be interest too in a collection of metal garden lamps by Harte, Wexford and six old framed photographs of Queenstown originally at Ballynoe House.  Artworks include a painting of Annalong Harbour, Co. Down by Lillian Lucy Davidson.
