Standing out in this auction was a pair of monumental elephant tusks selling for $122,500. The tusks stood 92 inches high and came from a local Dallas estate.
The consignor was first a buyer at Dallas Auction Gallery and then decided Dallas Auction Gallery was the right place to sell his important Asian collection.
Scott Shuford, president of Dallas Auction Gallery, said, “I was overwhelmed by the number of bidders and the results that we achieved. This was our best Asian Antique auction yet, achieving over $2 million in sales.”
