What happens when a treasure trove of Fabergé is discovered in Delray Beach, Florida? Collectors chomp at the bit. Brought to the United States in the 1960s, a collection of five exquisite pieces (some of which were privately held for 50 years) is now part of the Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches’s 350-lot January Estates Auction on January 12. Sale of the Russian valuables, including a gold brooch and a unique tie pin, is estimated to draw in upwards of $85,000. All forms of bidding — in gallery, absentee, phone and online via LiveAuctioneers — are available for the items.
