Sledgewick’s Auctions, Purveyors of Fine Antiques, proudly exhibited their latest finds to the cream of Gothia society last night at the Aerial Ballroom.
Taking centre stage were the Shrunken Heads from the Cannibal Floating Islands of Kuil-Lrupk-Kqa-Snig. This exquisitely curated collection of the finest taxidermy was displayed distinctly under the attention of curator, Ms Patrica Sledgewick, of Sledgewick’s Auctions. Back from another of her barnstorming tours of far flung corners of Gothia, Ms. Sledgewick highlighted that “the stitching and preservation techniques are some of the finest craftsmanship ever seen in the three republics”.
Also magnificently displayed was the Carpathian Lava Rock, the recently mined jewel discovered by that gallant Speleologist, Lord Cudrington of the Northern Carpathia Highlands. The Lava Rock became famous in controversial circumstances surrounding the nature of its discovery, where 147 men (natives mostly) were lost in its extraction from the Sulphuric Fires of Carpathia. Now viewed for the first time, it was proudly displayed for sale by Lady Ophelia Cudrington. Lord Cudrington, who was recovering from sulphuric burns to the groin, was much missed from the gathering.
Ms Sledgewick is recently engaged to Mr. Mordecai Frontebleu, the well known Palen-Aerologist of the Academy at Lawrencia.
