Stolen Art Watch, Meissen Monkey Teapot Sells for Five Times Lower Estimate !!!


Remember the recent article in which Art Hostage found a near identical Monkey Teapot to that stolen from Sir Reggie Sheffield, coming up for sale at Bonhams and Butterfields in San Franscisco on June 15th ?

Backstory:

Well, the said Meissen Monkey Teapot Sold for $20,740 inclusive of Buyer's Premium against the estimate of $4,000-$6,000, five times lower estimate.

I'll let you know if Sir Reggie Sheffield was the buyer or if it was it Sir Elton John?

The Meissen Monkey Teapot stolen from Sir Reggie Sheffield, below, is a much more true, crisp, perfect version.

Perhaps one day both Meissen Monkey Teapots can live side by side in peace to be enjoyed by all !!
