Collectors will be spoiled for choice at two auctions in Cork that day (November 6).
The venerable municipal enterprises of Marshs and Woodwards will be holding an online auction on the same day.
The Marshs Noon Sale is primarily from the estate of the late Professor David O’Mahony. The company has already sold its home to The Hollies, Sunday’s Well.
There is Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian furniture, paintings, watercolors, clocks, porcelain, Waterford glass, gilded mirrors, and sets of cork bar chairs.
Choice sets include a Louis XV style satin wood and violet wood flat desk, a Georgian serving table with brass rail, a Georgian cork clock by Jas Upington and a folding satin wood card table and Georgian style inlaid. Each of these lots is estimated between 1,500 and 2,000 €.
At a slightly lower estimate of € 1,000 to € 1,500, two sets of 11- and nine-bar cork chairs, a Georgian tallboy and a gold Regency wall mirror. An Anglo-Indian console in rosewood from the 19th century is estimated between 800 and 1000 €.
Other lots include a pair of blackened marble side cabinets with mirrored door, large Regency cellar, Georgian bookcase, Georgian secretary chest on chest, Georgian bedside lockers, bedside tables and a chesterfield sofa .
