  1. It could be said the Keno’s “artistic and elegant style” was predictable for the Nov. 19 NYC auction, but the reality of being in attendance presented a one-of-a-kind eye opener that was truly breathtaking. I’m glad they are serious players and even more pleased because they are truly and genuinely deserving of success in their newest venture. I look forward to Hershey in June.

  2. Interesting that they had high a fairly high percentage of no-sales. Must be a tad disappointing to them and their consignors, especially in that the offerings were limited and carefully “curated”.
