"still life with flowers and fruit", written by Nikolai Fechin circa 1925, was descended, like most of the lots of the auction collection, from the collection of Californian collectors and Mary Lou silver. Despite the catalog pre-auction estimate of $70-100 thousand, bargaining for lot started immediately with the upper limit of estimeyta, and the result turned out to be more than 2.5 times higher than the start, was for the organizers of the auction a pleasant surprise. However the surprise was the overall result of trading on July 26, which went under the hammer 95 % of the lots catalog, and total revenues exceeded $1.6 million.

St.-Петербург" hands Arseny Semionov, for $34 thousand, while the estimate of $30-50 thousand, was sold gouache Sergey Polyakov, for $12 thousand went to a new owner of a small bronze figurine of a cow, cast circa 1880 in the St. Petersburg factory Woerffel model Leonid Posen (estimate: $2-3 million).
