Hi Karin! The Fayum had a hammer price of $125,000 with a 15% buyers premium. Sold to a phone bidder in the UK. We LOVED this piece as well!!

Howdy neighbor.

The Cobbs have some amazing auctions. I've gotten props for paintings there.

And sometimes the art will take your breath away.

Contact them and get on their mailing list and keep tabs on what's coming.

It’s wise to choose a reputable company to organize your estate auction. If you have more valuable assets that need to be sold, a well-organized auction is the way to go.
