  1. Hi Ya Antiques Diva –

    Loved “the Sotheby’s sale” yesterday afternoon! I rushed and made it for an hour or so. Clearly I had my hopes up high for the velvet screen! Well, I missed buying it by far!!!! Darnnnnn, I did not even get to take part in the bidding because it started with a commission bid well over the amount I wanted to spend on it. Aaahhgggghh! Anyhow, from a positive p.o.v. you could say I was spot on knowing this would outgo it’s asking price 🙂 It went for 4000 euro, excl.!!!! Lucky Buyer!

    In general from what I saw, many lots did not get sold in that first hour, although there was good interest and bids, many of which did not reach their reserve. So, either the asking price was way too high or peeps went for the real treasures. The real biggies did sell, like Bart van der Leck etc, and eggshell porcelain, amazing vases etc., I checked website, and did not see that indicated, that they did not sell. I will look again to see if I see a note on it.

    The Dutch Wonder
