    From Georgian bedside chests to large ships models, Nankin blue and white plates to an antique lead water cistern dated 1776 the selection of over 400 lots at Lynes and Lynes in Carrigtwohill on July 16 is varied and interesting.  Drawn mainly from executors of various Cork estates the auction offers antique furniture, art, porcelain and collectibles.  Highlights include a Victorian breakfront bookcase (3,000-4,000), a large antique lead water cistern with owners initials WR dated 1766 (1,000-2,000) and a gilt oil of Venus and Adonis with an old Cork able of R and W Clarke.  The late 18th early 19th century work is  estimated at 1,000-1,500.
    Among the more unusual items are five large ships models, each estimated at 500-800.  Each one was made in Cork and measures over seven feet long.  They are the warships Bismarck, the USS New Jersey and the Yamato and the ocean liners Lusitania and Titanic.

    Collectibles like a fine pair of Georgian garden seats estimated at 1,000-1,5000 to old dolls (50-100), a section of old Nankin blue and white plates (100-200) and a Dutch silver oval jardiniere c 1900 (150-200) will create interest.  There is a section on books including works of Cork interest and the art will include Autumn Fruits by Gretta O’Brien (300-500) and a watercolour of St. Luke’s Church in Cork from Mahony’s Avenue by C.M. Doran (100-200).
