Glass display case sold at auction for $5,000

A glass display case for a wine glass has sold for $7,500 at auction in a rare auction for the type of items that typically fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction.

The auction house says the display case of a glass blowing class was sold at a Christie’s auction in California on Wednesday, and it is the second such case this year to be sold at the auction house.

Auction house officials say this is the first time a glass display, such as a wine, has been auctioned off at Christie’s.
