On May 8th, a branch of Bonhams auction opened in New York, which is one of the oldest and most famous in the world. And one of the projects put up for auction is a bicycle from Tiffany & company. We've talked about many new bike concepts, but this find beats all the latest bikes!
Perhaps, art lovers of the 20th century will appreciate it. It turns out that only a few of these bicycles were manufactured by Tiffany. And one of them was specially created for the famous actress and singer of the late 19th century - Lillian Russell (Lillian Russell), known for her magnificent voice and performances on stage, which drew a standing ovation.
It is planned that the price of antiques will be from 50,000 to 70,000. Well, considering that the case is finished in silver and the handles are made of ivory, the price is quite adequate.
The auction itself was founded in 1763 and focuses primarily on fine arts and antiques. The new auction building will be located on Madison Avenue.
