A series of 50 clocks, mostly from one collector, will be the highlight of the October sale at the Lincoln auction rooms.

The collection, including eight longcase clocks by makers from the East Midlands and Yorkshire, will go under the hammer at auctioneers Golding Young & Mawer on Wednesday, October 17.

Auctioneer John Leatt said: "This interesting collection of clocks from a local deceased estate includes longcase clocks, Vienna wall clocks and barometers and is sure to attract a great deal of interest on sale day."

The sale also includes a collection of 15 radios dating from the 1930s and later including an Ekco radio in a circular Bakelite case which is expected to sell for between £300 and £400. There are also around 10 portable and wind-up gramophones.

The furniture section includes a George IV mahogany extendable dining table with three loose leaves which is estimated to sell for between £2,000 and £3,000 and a George III mahogany bureau bookcase which is expected to make £600 to £800.

An early 19th century mahogany inverted breakfront bookcase in the manner of Henry Holland is expected to sell for £400 to £600.

A section of approximately 50 pictures features several sporting paintings including a late 19th century oil on canvas of gundogs by Frank Stratford which is estimated to sell for £600 to £800.

There is also an extensive local collection of military cap badges from various British regiments.
