Pancho Villa’s Guns Auctioned

American folk hero or Mexican Revolutionary Pancho Villa always carried guns.  Two of the guns were auctioned off this weekend in Texas where organizers say they fetched less than expected.  A Remington Model 1875 single action revolver with his real name (Doreteo Arango) engraved on the barrel sold for $18,000 and a rifle owned by Villa was auctioned off for about $7,500.  The two day auction in Texas featured late 19th century guns and Western memorabilia as well as native American items.

Record Auction Price

A Swiss woman stored what she thought was a fake Qing dynasty vase at the bottom of her closet along with her shoes and boots after inheriting it from her parents.  Sotheby’s this week announced the sale of the vase for more than $7.5 million.  As it turns out, the blue and white dragon vase, which was a beautiful example of its period, was not a fake. 

The woman’s parents had purchased the vase at an antique store in Germany for a song.  In the thirty years she had the vase, she used it to put flowers in it and apparently one day got sick of looking at it and put it away at the bottom of her closet. Later, the Swiss woman saw a similar vase at an exhibition and contacted Sotheby’s Auction House in London, who enlightened her about the worth of the vase.

Ill Gotten Gains Auctioned Off

On Saturday, November 10, 2007, Sloan & Kenyon Auctioneers of Washington auctioned off the ill gotten belongings of Barbara Bullock in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  For those of you who may not remember, Ms Bullock is serving a 6 ˝ year prison sentence for stealing more than $4.5 million from the Washington Teacher’s Union in 2004.  She used part of the money to buy 19th Century Tiffany Silver, furs and handbags.  Money recouped from the auction was returned to Union coffers. In addition to the stolen loot, Sloan & Kenyon had works by Warhol and Foujita as well as strands of hair from Washington and Lincoln.
