*STOP SALE AT SOTHEBY’S…!*
From the legendary collection of Egypt’s Last Queen, Nariman, King Farouk’s wife, this piece was ‘stopped’ by authorities while on sale at the famous “Sotheby’s” of New York, at a measly price ranging between between $175,000 and $225,000 – due for sale on April 24th, just a few days ago!
The citrines, 18k gold and diamond necklace & bracelet, made in Paris by special demand, and priceless by definition more so by historical value, was stolen from Egypt in 2006 and said to have been taken via Sudan & Libya, then on by sea to Italy then to the UK where it was bought by an Englishman before reappearing for sale at Sotheby’s New York.
While the jewellery is still in New York, the entire issue is now being handled by Egyptian authorities and international lawyers for its return to the Egyptian government, being the legitimate owners, after having the items confiscated during President Nasser’s regime at the outburst of the first revolution in 1952.
WHO DONE IT — IS ANOTHER TALE..!
