Standing Ovation For Jackson's Glove

MICHAEL JACKSON's Swarovski Crystal glove won a standing ovation at an auction in Las Vegas on Friday (25Jun10) when it went under the hammer for a staggering $192,000 (£128,000).
The worn glove was the highlight of the Julien’s Auctions sale, which fell on the first anniversary of the King of Pop's death.
Standing room only crowds turned out in record numbers to attend the Music Icons auction at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
Jackson's documents, drawings, clothing and furniture were the main attractions.
Auction house boss Darren Julien tells WENN, "It was amazing with interest from around the world and the crowd stood to its feet and cheered when Michael Jackson’s white Swarovski Crystal glove from the Victory Tour sold. I've never seen anything like it."
Other highlights included: Jackson's Victory Tour Jacket, which sold for $66,000 (£44,000), Michael Jackson's Drawing of a Man ($30,000/£20,000), an autograph Jackson signed the day before his death ($21,000/£14,000), and a Jackson Signed Beat-It Jacket ($132,000/£88,000).
Even Jackson's worn loafers sold well - for $90,000 (£60,000).
A Tsar Nicholas II replica parlour set which the late pop superstar commissioned for the rented English home he planned to live in during his This Is It dates in London last summer (09) was among the few items which failed to sell.
Mariah Carey was reportedly interested in the ornate sofa and chairs, but her man at the auction, interior designer Kenneth Bordewick, didn't bid for it. Insiders claim Carey lost interest following her involvement in the auction pre-publicity.
Julien reveals he has a private Russian buyer interested in purchasing the custom-made Combustile furniture which failed to sell at the auction.
