Art showing things one might have eaten at Haussner's did well. A bronze pheasant went for $3,000, a bronze rabbit $2,700, a bronze lobster $3,700. A still-life of peaches by A.J.H. Way went for $6,500. Historic and fictional personages were hot properties (busts of sundry Caesars, $12,500; a bronze Hercules, $2,800; Socrates, $5,000; Columbus, $3,500; Dante, $2,700), as were domestic animals. A small Albert Willens canvas of hunting dogs (est. $500-$700) went for $7,000, or $17,600 per square foot. A set of three postcard-sized paintings of kittens (est. $450-$650) also fetched $7,000, from a little woman with merry eyes and white hair, outfitted in tweed and sensible shoes. It was her only purchase of the day. "I like cats," she explained. She declined to give her name, but said she had patronized Haussner's from the 1940s till its very last day, when she dined on lobster tail.
