Over 230 items, including King Carol I’s travel desk, to go up on History Auction

Over 230 items, many of which are rarities including a travel desk that belonged to King Carol I, will be up for grabs at the History Auction of Artmark scheduled for September at Cesianu-Racovita Palace. 

 The selection of this auction dedicated to history also includes some first appearances, including a travel desk, circa 1890, that belonged to King Carol I. It bears the monogram of the king. The starting price is set at EUR 1,500 euros, according to Artmark.

 At the same event, other royal items are auctioned, including a crystal and silver carafe with the cipher of Queen Elizabeth of Romania, on whose lid is engraved the Eberhardt workshop; a photograph of Princess Marie, the future queen, signed by hand, taken at the Mandy workshop in Bucharest; a photograph of Princess Marie (Mignon), signed by hand, and a vintage photograph of Queen Marie and her daughter, Princess Marioara (Mignon), with the handwritten signatures of the two.

 The history auction also includes a selection of numismatics items, with lots appearing for the first time in public, including two extremely rare coins – a Gros, Alexander the Good, Moldavia, coin, 1400-1432, made of silver, and a Gros, Stephen the Great [Stefan cel Mare], 1457-1504 coin, also made of silver.

 The entire collection of historical items are displayed in a free admission exhibition at Artmark Galleries, every day, from Monday to Sunday, between 10:00hrs and 20:00hrs.
