The sale of the 717 lots on 25 May was like taking a journey through history and continents. Entitled "Art and handcrafts, antiquities", the catalogue included virtually every epoch and every region of the world, all testaments to outstanding craftsmanship in a wide variety of materials. Fantastic results were achieved, thanks to the keen participation of the bidders on the telephone and the hitherto unknown, yet extremely active community of online bidders on all six auction platforms, culminating in a sensational, thirty-fold increase of the opening price.
