On Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 December, about 450 lots went on the block. 
Most light was shed on Old Masters paintings and related applied arts.
Two portraits atributed to Gaspar De Crayer (lot 191), depicting 
Albrecht and Isabella, left the room for 48.000 euros. A small 
intriguing copper panel after Dürer (lot 6) climbed up to 12.000 euros. 
A copy after Jacob De Wit made a steady 5000 euros. The real highlight 
of the evening was a Spanish Retabel fragment with predella (lot 89), 
which sold for 40.000 to a dealer on the phone.
This time some Russian icons too were eagerly chased after by some 
collectors in the room and on the phone.
The same goes for some rare pieces Delft earthenware: a monkey eating a 
banana sold for 2000 euros, whereas a parrot on a ring easily took 4200 
euros and a pair of cisterns or 'Bobbejak' (lot 12), climbed up to 13200 
On the side of the 19th century, the large collection of bronzes seemd 
rather difficult to sell. But a Wang Hing silver table piece (lot 354) 
on the contrary took it's new owner to a well earned 15.000 euros. A 
three-piece Brandimarte table garniture (lot 355) almost doubled it's 
estimate and made a fair 11.000 euros.
Four life size plaster statues by Jozef Geefs (lot 385) gaurding the 
hall during the exhibition left for 10.000 euros.
