Sandra, the first buyer this Monday, April 18, proposed a painting depicting a Second Empire gendarmerie scene and signed Louis Henry Dupray. Auctioneer Patricia Casini-Vitalis estimated this object at 400 euros, but the price in the auction room rose to 850 euros. Many sellers had the pleasure of closing “closed deals” with the experts at the fair. However, Sasha was not so lucky and attracted the wrath of netizens.
“Why are you selling?”
The 33-year-old Parisian was no stranger to the set of Affaire Conclue. She had already attended the show for the first time to sell a small bronze. This time she repeated the experience to offer a family item that caused a sensation among Sophie Davant and the auctioneer. So Sasha offered a jewelry set that belonged to her great-great-grandmother. To prove her origins, she even brought her eldest’s death certificate with a photo of her wearing the jewels. An object of great financial and above all sentimental value. As pointed out by Patricia Caisini-Vitalis, these earrings and brooch are made of 14k gold accented with amethysts and mother-of-pearl. When netizens discovered this family treasure, they were shocked. For some it is simply “shameful” to sell this property with such a history.
“She should have kept it”
What amazed netizens the most was the turn of this sale. While the auctioneer estimated this piece of jewelery at a price of 400 euros, the buyers were not seduced by this object. Eventually it was Christophe Servant who placed the highest bid, but the latter was far from the estimate. He only offered 250 euros. If Sasha was disappointed with this sum, she still agreed to sell her property while the other buyers had urged her to refuse. A misunderstanding for the twittos who are annoyed by such a low price and the choice of seller.
