Results from today's Sotheby's auction in Paris have just been posted.
The high hitter was the Luba headrest featured on the front of the catalog which sold for 1,524,000 euros. It beat the 1,356,000 euro sale price for the Luba headrest that sold on this date last year in Paris. That headrest, from what I was told, sold to Antonio Casanovas (Arte Y Ritual), I wonder if Antonio was the high bidder on today's headrest?
Link to the headrest sold last year that I mention above:

The next biggest hitter was the Luluwa maternity at 482,400 euros that Lee mentioned in a previous post.
A beautiful piece!
