On Wednesday, October 9th 2019, AlBahie held another successful auction titled The Amber Auction. The auction featured hand-carved misbaha, chess sets, as well as decorative sculptures and other collectibles. This auction surely became a crowd favorite.

Highly coveted and valued from antiquity to the present, Amber has been prized as a gemstone in jewelry making and as a healing agent in folk medicine. The fascinating history of Amber and its special significance to collectors in the region inspired AlBahie to bring a collection of this unique stone to auction.

As part of Katara Cultural Village Foundation, AlBahie continues to engage Qatar’s community of local and international collectors by organizing auctions, selling exhibitions and special events. Stay tuned for upcoming events.
