Amazing collection of Butterflies at auction
Friday 24 January will take place the spectacular auction of a collection of Butterflies in Bordeaux offered by the house Briscadieu.
More than 600 boxes will be on display again this morning before the vente aux enchères. This collection of Claude Dupont, an antique dealer who disappeared a few months ago, offers us a panel of the most beautiful specimens. A collection that he started at the age of 12. The butterflies are extremely well preserved. They were staged in a small museum that Claude Dupont had set up to share his crazy passion.
A couple of Ornithoptéra Alexandrae from New Guinea is the flagship of this sale.
