The Antiquities and Ancient Jewelry sales in New York achieved a combined total of nearly $15 million, selling 70% by lot and 62% by value. Sixteen lots from the Collection of John W. Kluge brought in nearly $3 million, which contributes to the late philanthropist’s pledge to fund student scholarships at Columbia University.
“We are thrilled with the combined sales total of nearly $15 million, one of the highest in the history of Christie’s worldwide Antiquities Department,” said G. Max Bernheimer, International Department Head.
“We were especially pleased with results of the Property from the Collection of John W. Kluge, sold to Benefit Columbia University, which achieved a total of $2,970,500,” added Molly Morse Limmer, Antiquities Department Head, New York. “Every lot in the top ten sold to private or institutional buyers from Europe and North America. The gilt silver bust of Cleopatra Selene, which came from a private New York-based collector, led the day, achieving $2,546,500 against an estimate of $2 - 3 million, while the 13th annual Ancient Jewelry sale was the highest sold total yet achieved for this category, with extraordinary Celtic jewelry achieving over $600,000.”
