Kestenbaum & Company’s auction of rare Judaica broke a record December 6th. “An extraordinarily rare and important 18th century, Polish parcel-gilt silver filigree spice container” sold for $337,900. That’s right, a spice container sold for the price of a house. A nice house. The 19-lot single-owner auction sale of ceremonial objects from the Collection of The Jewish Historical Society of England brought in a total of more than $670,000. The sale of the ceremonial¬†spice container crushed estimates, which had its value placed between $150,000-200,000.
