    An ancient Mexican statue possibly dating to the 3rd century BC is one of the more unusual lots at Aidan Foley’s sale in aid of the RNLI in Kinsale on September 16. The 76 cms tall figure is accompanied by an authentication report from CIRAM, the French radio carbon dating laboratory, and is estimated at 10,000-15,000.

    The cause is exceptional so this sale has attracted a variety of quality lots ranging from the Lipton Challenge Cup presented to Cove Sailing Club, Cork Harbour in 1921 by Sir Thomas Lipton to a tanzanite and diamond ring donated by Loretta Brennan Glucksman. The wide variety on offer includes contents from the former Lovetts Restaurant in Cork, Irish and English silver, art, furniture and jewellery.
