    Default Treasure's Trove Jewel Auction

    Thought some of you might be interested in this. Sotheby's New York will be selling the Bee and Ant jewels from A Treasure's Trove in the "Important Jewels" Auction tomorrow. I'm having trouble accessing the E-catalogue right now, but here is the search page where they appear.

    These two jewels were first auctioned by Sotheby's in Oct 2007 along with the Spider, Firefly, Beetle and Grasshopper. Here is a link to the 2007 press release:

    Here's hoping they both find nice new homes.

    So apparently no one took the jewels and instead opted for the cash

    Only some of them were sold. Every single token finder chose to take the jewel instead of the cash equivalent value also offered by A Treasure's Trove. Then, six of the winners decided to sell privately via the 2007 auction. The Snail was sold separately by his owner using Ebay.

    The rest of the jewels are still in the hands of their original finders.
