"This auction brought many treasures from different ruling dynasties together, showing us the great craftsmanship of times past, from antiquity to the modern era. Among many fine objects that found their way into the collections of their new owners, I was particularly delighted by the sale of the extraordinarily well-preserved ancient Egyptian model boat and the thrilling bidding war over the bronze censer in the form of a lion."

Dominik Mahdavi Azar, Expert in Ancient, Islamic and Oriental Art
