Note that superlatives about their ranking in the auction world are based on Hong Kong, not New York:
Acker concluded its 2018 auction season in New York City in December with an impressive US$105 million in total auction sales, representing an increase of 31% compared to 2017’s revenue. Indicative of the firm’s #1 position, Acker set a remarkable 2,150+ new world records during 2018, while crossing the milestone of $1B of revenue in total auction sales in its June Hong Kong sale this same year.
How does the $105M figure compare to Christie's or Sothebie's in the US, or Hart Davis or Zachy's?

(I see that the talks to sell a 45% stake in the HK arm to Madison Wine ended in 2017: https://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2017/ ... rtnership/)
“The writing of legislation is perhaps the highest art form the United States has yet achieved, even more original and compelling than the television commercial.” – Gore Vidal, 1974

It's hard for a $35 zin to compete with a $100 cabernet that tastes the same. – me, 2018
