THE RICH PENN September Auction Event drew world wide interest. And one of the featured items set a world auction record. The Andrew Clemens (1852-1894) sand jar, lot #984 generated a full bank of phone bidders competing with aggressive internet and floor bidders. When the sand and dust settled, the 7.5″ tall piece of sand art hammered down to an East Coast bidder for $45,000. All reported prices are hammer prices and do not reflect the 10% – 20% buyer’s premium.
