I see they are still squeezing out the Chandigarh pieces. I wonder how many more they have in the warehouse??? Why did the Grossman lamps go so high - a couple bidders with the fever I guess? It's always interesting to compare estimates and results, and what didn't sell, i.e. who's in control, the auction house sets the market or the buyers set the market? It's also scary to think of the retail mark-up assuming a reasonable number of pieces go to dealers.
