      Greetings everyone,

      Here are a two of the more unusual items featuring marbled papers
      coming up at auction at Christie' later this month. Be sure to cut and
      paste all of the link between the brackets. Then click on the image to
      view a larger one. My personal favorite is the revolving bookstand...

      enjoy!
