Strange biddings

Recommended Posts


Hello everybody,

I recently bought in Drouot Paris a beautiful mummy mask in excellent condition, Late Period, H 23 cm for €650 (see first picture)
By contrast, in the very same sale an awful mask, sold for more, see second picture. 
I barely understand such stupid rationale. In addition, again in this sale, many copies of wooden servants of Middle Kingdom date, which were correctly advertised as copies, sold for a fortune : for example a group of servants with an estimation of €200-300 sold for €1600!
