A pair of Mahatma Gandhi’s glasses have sold for £260,000 after they were found sticking halfway out of an auction house’s letterbox.
The spectacles were bought through a phone bid from an American collector after six minutes of bidding on Friday.
Auctioneer Andrew Stowe said it was a new record for East Bristol Auctions and described it as “the star lot of the century”.
The glasses had been expected to sell for about £15,000. (BBC)
