Hi Rand and all,
I agree with many of your picks especially the Lengola figure.
The other ones that I found are as follow:-
lot61 Lobi pair(probably my joint favourite with the Fon figure)
lot79 Yoruba door
lot81 yoruba maternity
lot 85 Fon figure
lot 111 Bembe couple(this would not be a usual choice for me but
there's something really special about this figure for me)

> Hi group,
> I hope this email finds everyone in good spirits!
> Today the auction catalog for the upcoming Sotheby's November 11th
auction came in the mail. I look forward to the arrival of these
catalogs like I used to look forward to the arrival of the SEARS
holiday catalog with all of the toys in it. I don't know what to
relate this to in Europe and everywhere else, but I'm sure there was
a similar catalog for all of you when you were kids.
> My brother and sister's and I used to sit down and make my wish
list to give to our parents from the Sears holiday catalog, and now I
make my wish list from the Sotheby's catalog but don't have anyone to
give it to, but I will share it with you all.
> There were many beautiful objects in the catalog this time, and I
created a page on my site with my favorite objects in the auction
including photos and descriptions.
> The page is linked below:
> I have also included a direct link to the entire catalog on the
Sotheby's website on my page.
> If anyone is feeling REALLY generous for the holidays... my
favorite pick in the catalog is the wonderful Lengola figure from the
Britt Family Collection :-)
> Enjoy! and please feel free to share your favorite object(s) from
the catalog with the group.
