... BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ITEM...

AFTER DETHRONING KING FARUK, THE MILITARY REGIME

CONFISCATED HIS 4 PALACES, AND REMOVED HIS ROYAL TREASURES

TO THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUMS IN CAIRO.   A SHORT TIME LATER,

NEEDING TO IMPROVE THE GOVERNMENT TREASURY, THEY

DECIDED TO SELL  FAROUKS'  TREASURES THEY HAD

PLACED IN THE MUSEUMS.

=====

Sotheby's  catalogued and conducted the sale

of Farouk's vast collection of treasures

in 1954.   News reporters described it as

" The Sale of the Century "

MEANWHILE,  the government had also seized the

oil empire belonging to an American,  John Mendenhahl.

They also seized the banking accounts Mendenhahl held in

their Egyptian Banks.   They dis-allowed him to transfer

his monies to USA banks, but permitted him to spend his

monies on in Egypt.

....

Mendenhahl purchased with his bank funds,  a vast

amount of the KING FAROUK TREASURES which

were being sold from the Museums.   He commissioned

his hoard to be transferred, by ship,  to a NYC

Warehouse....where the treasures remained in storage

for approximately 20 years.

...

When Mendenhahl died, his son and heir placed

these wonderful treasures up for sale. There were

3 Sales of 3 days each....a total of 9 days.... 

We attended the first 3 day sale,

and purchased FAROUK

items to stock a high-end antique business, which

was then in operation.

WE SOLD THIS,  FAROUK'S  STERLING  SILVER

CIGARETTE  CASE

TO A COLLECTOR OF FINE ANTIQUES

AND NOW,  ABOUT 38 YEARS LATER,  HE IS

DOWNSIZING HIS COLLECTION,  RETIRING, AND

ASKED US TO RESELL IT AND ANOTHER  OF

FAROUK'S  SILVER DESK ITEMS.

Owner, aware that probably no other similar case

exists, and one's estimate of value of this item

is necessarily an arbitrary one,  he welcomes

buyers' serious best offers, and assures buyers

that he will give careful consideration

to all serious buyers' offers.
