Looks like Prince Ernst may have some more problems with the law regarding sale of antique weapons....

Ernst August's Family Auctions Antiques

HANOVER, Germany - An auction of more 20,000 antiques and art objects owned by the family of Prince Ernst August of Hanover brought in more than $4.7 million Wednesday, the first day of its sale.

Sales began briskly, with a Norwegian buyer paying $214,560 for a triptych by a student of Lucas Cranach. Some 200 other paintings also were sold after the auction opened at the family's Marienburg palace in Hanover, according to Sotheby's auction house, which organized the sale.
"The auction has met with unusual resonance," said Heinrich von Spreti, head of Sotheby's German branch.

Sotheby's now expects the auction to fetch well above the original estimate of $14.3 million, which will be used to restore the palace. The objects were selected by Ernst August's two sons, Ernst August and Christian, who gathered them from Marienburg's attic and cellar.

Some 8,000 interested buyers flocked to the palace to view the furniture, weapons, jewelry, costumes and paintings that are being offered. Many of the objects date from the 17th and 18th centuries, when members of the family ruled Hanover. The most valuable lot is expected to be a pair of Imperial-era vases from St. Petersburg, Russia, valued at up to $894,000.

Ernst August, the husband of Princess Caroline of Monaco, is a distant relative of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and great-grandson of the last German emperor, Wilhelm II. He is descended from one of Germany's oldest noble families.

The sale runs through Oct. 15.

C'est vraiment bizarre de comparer Caroline, élégante, très stylée une classe infinie avec cette personne plutôt vulgaire et opportuniste

How long has it been since the palace was last restored? They say that they money is for restoration, but is that much money needed?

I would love to see those 17th century Russian vases! I could never buy them since the bidding starts at almost $900,000! That's insane! But I bet they are amazing. They are getting rid of those things because they are men and they don't care about them, so why not get some more money? It's not like they need more money, but if they can get it, why not?

I wonder if Caroline agrees with the auction. I would think she would be sad to see some of those items going away. She seems like a person who values historical things. But alas, there's nothing she can do really, as they aren't her things.

Please remember that the offical board language is English. It's not fair to post a message in another language without providing a translation, because there are many members who cannot read what is spoken.

Can we say Chanel? head to toe. What ever happened to color, she is only wearing black on black, with accesories in black.

You're so right! It's obvious Karl did this special number just for Caroline and just for this event. Maybe she told him, "Make it black, honey, so I can match Stephanie!" :p I do wish these two women would not wear black. Their skin tones are really much better complimented by bright colors. Red and pink are sensational on them.

I think they look really good in red and pink also, but I think they are both extremely striking in black with their coloring.
