    Choice antique items are reasonably estimated at the Lynes and Lynes sale in Carrigtwohill, Co. Cork on October 10.  An antique mahogany shop display cabinet from Macroom – a once off lot if ever there was one – has an estimate of 1,000-1,500.  The value to be had in furniture right now is underlined by items such as a Victorian inlaid walnut work box with swivel top complete with chess board and backgammon board estimated at just 500-700, a Victorian gilt over mantle (400-600) and a Cork tray back sideboard (300-500).  The catalogue is online.
