I wonder if the view from the MGM penthouse suites equals the views both east and west from this penthouse suite composed of two adjoining apartments put together. You will have to judge for yourself by coming to the sale. Aside from the breathtaking views, you will thoroughly enjoy walking through a unit that has 2 kitchens (one converted into a wet bar), and 6 bedrooms (one converted into an office). One dining room has been converted into a large library which is bordered by one of 2 enclosed balconies. It is very tastefully decorated, as is the rest of the space.
Think "organic" and "earthtones" when you see the MANY fine pieces of glazed pottery throughout: bowls, vases, plates. The 5-shelf rack on the balcony adjacent to the library has earth-tone glazed tile shelves. The wall clock in the same room features earth-tone glazed tile. Much of the wood furniture is natural wood. In the library you will find a 4-door rosewood-veneered cabinet topped by 46" flat screen TV. The other flat screen TV for sale is 31". In the same room, you will enjoy the burnt red tiled coffee table and side table.
Of course, upon entering you have already been surprised by the mottled tortoise shell-look credenza and have trouble deciding whether to turn right or left. The library and wet bar are on the left. We have emptied the kitchen cabinets there as much as we can to make it easier for you to choose among the clear cut crystal and pottery. The stemware includes Czech crystal with colored bowl portion. If you turn right, you can go right into the other kitchen which is loaded with more pottery and fine cookware.
Then onto the dining room which offers a long dining table, dining ware cabinet, as well as double flip-top server. We have set up 4 folding tables in that room to display the large quantity of ceramics and silverplate serving pieces plus table linens. Some of you will shy away from standing too close to the floor-to-ceiling windows on the adjacent enclosed balcony but will enjoy the view over a rectangular plateglass table displaying natural wood carvings. Turning around into the main living room, you will have a choice of a pair of dark green armchairs, dark-tone floral upholstered sofa, occasional tables and table lamps. For those of you into "retro", open the accordion-door cabinet full of audio equipment.

When you get lost in the maze of bedrooms, just follow someone around. On the way you will find one bedroom set with double bed in maple, another with a pair of Chinese carved rosewood bedside cabinets flanking a king-size bed covered with a handmade quilt. All of the closets are FULL, especially men's size XL dress and casual shirts, neckties, sz 48-52 suits, and sz 14 shoes. If you fit into these, you will be taking home fine Burbury suits at a fraction of original price. There is a good slant/drop-front desk in one bedroom.
Of course, you will find framed large paintings/prints as well as smaller ones on the walls everywhere. For those of you who want a souvenir of Alexandria, you can purchase the large framed Alexandria street scene. You will also find original framed paintings from Vietnam. On your way around, you will discover a cedar chest for sale, a rocker, 2 VERY NICE wall mirrors with stained glass frames, and a "semainier" (French for "seven", having 7 drawers, one for each day of the week).
There are a few exceedingly special items in this sale. One is an 82"h x 38"w lighted display cabinet with beveled glass panes that opens on each side. On the plate glass shelves inside you will see Lladros, Hummels, and other porcelain figurines, all for sale. Another is the RARE and formerly very expensive work table custom-made of sycamore top and side slats in a black walnut frame, 78"l x 32"d (purchase receipt of approx $4K in the year 2000). One of you who came to last week's sale wanted a drafting sale or large work table. This table is DELUXE for you. The third item is a recliner that seems to do everything, black leather with control panel, from the Monroe Comfort Theatre collection. It includes 2 cup holders (purchase receipt of over $2,700). You will have to take turns reclining in it, especially if you are going to read one of over 1,000 books we have for sale, most in the same room. The bookcases are for sale, also a FINE world globe in wood stand. All of this makes for a very rich intellectual setting -- at least we can aspire to it.
Who will take home the period light green glass oil lamp (now electrified) or one of 4 ivory carvings? Three of the carvings are small, but the one of the maiden is 11-1/2" high. We have put these in a display case along with fine wood carvings for you to discover. The display case also has costume jewelry for you. Other souvenirs or your visit may be a framed German etching or a Renoir copy or original palette-knife technique painting of Paris. These were popular (and expensive) back in the 1970s. So, come to enjoy being there, the items, the views. Please bring satchels and boxes with you as we have none to offer you. Everything in this sale is original to the unit.
