Price: $ 10,000.00 (Object d`Art » Rock Hudson)
Ancient vase encrusted with barnacles. Phoenician
I'm still trying to find the origin of this item.
Just think, it was probably used for years then went down with a sinking ship and landed on the bottom of the sea and sat there for centuries. Then it was discovered brought to the surface and was sold. That's where Rock Hudson comes in. He bought it, brought it home and enshrined it there.
He loved this piece and loved to tell the story I just mentioned.
FADE OUT / FADE IN
I was watching one of those Educational Channel programs on about an ancient ship that was found at the entrance of a harbor. As of the filming, no one was allowed to touch anything, but they were allowed to film it. While I sat there watching the divers footage of the wreck, I was in aw to see the exact same vases lined up on the floor of the ship. I took the vase over to the T.V. and compared it to what I was watching. So similar were they that the barnacles were even lined in the same direction.
