In the year to May 2020, Luthers Auctioneer Mark Hansen and the family of the late, great John Luther will auction off their collection of more than a million objects, from the Titanic and the Titanic liner to the famous Luthern-era football stadium.
In an emotional and poignant auction on Monday, Hansen revealed that he had been forced to sell a large part of his collection in a desperate attempt to help support his wife and children after he lost a family member in the Titanic disaster.
“I’m so proud of my collection,” Hansen said.
“There’s a lot of stuff that’s still here that I would have loved to have and wanted to keep.”
This is my chance to give it all away.
This is what I love about this job.
“Hansen was an experienced auctioneer who ran a successful auction for the Titanic in 2000.
He was a former captain of the Titanic, which sank off the coast of Scotland on April 15, 1912.”
When the Titanic went down in 1912, there was a lot on the line.
It was a very big deal for me, a lot for my family, my wife and the children,” he said.”
My wife and my kids are living in Scotland now, and we have our grandchildren.
“On Monday, the auction will be sold at a private sale to raise money for his family.
The collection will also go on display in the Luthess Museum in New Zealand.
Hansen, who was born in England and has lived in New York since he was a teenager, said he wanted to give back to the people of Ireland.”
We’ve been through a lot together and this is a big one for me,” he told the Irish Times.”
The people who worked so hard for so many years are going to see it for the first time.
“Hang on to your hats, Lutshers, the event is in two days.
I think that’s it, I’m just going to hang on to my hats and hope that I’m not going to be judged by my wife, my children, my grandchildren, my friends,” he added.
