    Are the Chinese suddenly buying Knibb clocks, or is there a reasonable explanation for the discrepancy between the estimate and realised price?

    Either way, it’s quite a result!

    I checked out the link to Dreweatts & Bloomsbury. Will we be seeing a reproduction of the magnificent Irish mahogany table in the forseeable future?
