Lot 6011 is worthy of special mention. Bids were invited from 300 euros for a Caucasian kinjal, forged circa 1900. Boasting an ornamentally engraved grip of walrus ivory, inlaid in gold and silver, the sword demanded its tribute, enticing the winning bid of 1,750 euros.
Meanwhile, three daos from China went on to eclipse their starting price. As lot number 6051, the three magnificently etched, 18th and 19th century edged weapons sold for 3,750 euros, more than ten times the limit of 350 euros.
