This small furniture ensemble is made of cow bone. Using a different technique, seven miniatures might be made between 1880 and 1890. "With a very good saw blade, someone has this filigree structure, as seen here on the bank's edge, made, which is a very high skill," said Sven fascinated .

Paying attention to how detailed the pieces succeeded was also proven in harmonium. Here, for example, the note is painted neatly by hand. Horst began to chatter: "It can't be trusted, crazy! Sven is also very excited:" Yes, it's super, super, super workmanship! "

With so much Horst openwork, it can't be stopped: "My dear, I think it's very impressive, because if you are close, you see this amazing job, so if I only see a seat here at the bank, I will be wrong! the remaining question: what is the value of bone craft?

Therefore Horst Lichter is allowed to give merchant cards to lucky sellers. In addition, there is a special message of thanks: "I want to say thank you personally for extraordinary things, because it gives me a lot of pleasure to see things that I have never seen before."

However, the admiration for mini furniture was not only from Julian, who quickly offered himself with colleague Jan Cizek with a 150 euro offer. In the end, however, Markus Wildhagen (pictured) was awarded a contract and paid 200 euros for bone furniture – two times more than the seller expected at first.
