Italian auction......


Recommended Posts

Auction - only 44 seconds!

don't have to understand Italian to follow the auctioneer:

Chinese Ming Vase is up for auction. The bidding opens at a half-million
Bidding is brisk and each bidder is clearly identified as each
raises the bid by 100,000 Euros. (The exchange rate at auction time
was 1 Euro =
$1.43.) Within seconds, the bid stalls at one million Euros, and the gasp from
the crowd identifies the excitement that prevails in the room. The successful
bidder is the last one who bid one million , and the auctioneer counts down the
bid, "Going once, going twice, and sold to the gentleman sitting in front of me
for one million Euros."

Now, you are going to have to see the
video for yourself.The auctioneer is exuberant. The pace is fast. This
is how an
auction should be run. Please note the excitement on the auctioneer's
face after
the final bid.
