Not much , but something ! 

Bruun Rasmussen Bredgade’s  Auction House , Copenhagen , Denmark is staging a general antique auction on May 29th at their Copenhagen gallery . 

So generally i flip through their auction inventories  ( 48 total lots )  and there isn’t anything worth mentioning but it’s kinda quite out there right now and  this time around i notice two lots that seemed at least somewhat interesting in this slow activity period .

Lot # 349 , Susani . Pre- sale estimate 70,000.00 kr ,= $ 7260.00 . Clearly no where near the oldest but far better than their usual level of items they offer.

Lot # 404 Tekke Khalyk . Pre- sale estimate a very realistic 50,000.00 kr = $ 7,540.35 . Again not the earliest but in my opinion the best collectors item in this limited group .

Mr Langauer and the gang at A. A. C. , Vienna ,Austria held their “Fine Rugs XV” sale today and as it’s been for them this year the sale went swimmingly well . Out of the 215 total lots offered up for sale only approximately 21 failed to garner any bidding interest . A sold percentage of right at 90% . Not quite as much of a clean sweep as the earlier sales this year but still very good which keeps the success streak alive . 

A couple of things worth noting . 

Nothing in the way of a serious upside pop and some of the items offered sold very , very inexpensively .

That said still a very commendable job by UDO and staff !  

Concerning the two lots i featured in the earlier review both sold .

Lot # 182 , Ningxia frag. Pre- sale est. £ 6-800.00 . Sold for £ 2,800.00 . Closest thing to an upside surprise in the sale ! 

Lot # 187, Konya frag. Pre- sale est. £ 6-800.00 . Sold for £ 200.00 . Boy , the market has really fallen off on these once hot items !

Dog o the week , 

With about ever Dimi in the U.S.of A. running for president lets not forget to consider Nancy ( the cadaver ) Pelosi , Rashida ( the mouth ) Tlaib , or even Maxine ( the wig ) Waters  , and don’t forget about me , this is America and even “The Damed”  get a shot , Boo Yah ! Sheik Frederich , 2019.

Shitty movie o the week , BlacKkKlansman , 2018. 3.5 poopsickles out of 5. I watched this movie a few times and i get exactly where S.L.was going with it but in my opinion this movie creates more racial issues than it’s trying to explain ? 

Movie o the week , Oceans 8 , 2018 . Sandra the great , what more needs to be said and a pretty good flick to boot ! 

Song o the week , It’s a 2 fur ! , Boo Yah !   An interesting comparison ?

Jefferson Airplane , Somebody to Love on Surrealistic Pillow , 1967
