Dos dois leiloes especiais que a Christie’s e a Sotheby’s apresentaram hoje e ontem (Treasures-Princely Taste e The Exceptional Sale), o lustre em prata feito para Jorge II, rei do Reino Unido e de Hanover, e mais tarde de Hubert de Givenchy, era a peca que realmente tinha todos os ingredientes para ser um sucesso na venda. Saiu por £5,753,250 contra uma estimativa de £2,600,000 – £3,600,000.
