Default Re: Cruise Ships & Art Auctions - Article - CRUISE LINES

I would be willing to bet a cruise that the Renoir for $395 was a framed print and the frame was worth more than the print. A true Renoir would not sell for $395, unless it was Fred Renoir. <VBG>

There are some reasonable deals at art auctions and some real rip offs. On Carnival Legend there was a framed, signed Harmon Killebrew jersey. It was outside the Sports Bar with a sign next to it that said it would be up for auction. I asked the auctioneer when they were going to put it up and he told me that they weren't. They used it to bring people in. I thought it was basically misrepresentation, or worse.

Take care,
