Collectors and aficionados of the finest silver and top quality antiques were treated to a number of real rarities during this auction. Ranging from a large Torah parchment scroll, which found a proud new owner for the sum of €5,500, which far exceeded its starting price of €3,400, to a pair of luxurious champagne coolers from 1849, which attained a hammer price of €16,000. The most expensive item of the evening came in the shape of an elaborately decorated miniature casket fashioned from amber and ivory. At an estimated value of €8,000, the casket entered the auction with a starting price of €4,000 and eventually sold for the impressive sum of €130,000.
