TELEVISION – The scene is beyond comprehension. During the broadcast, on June 8, 2021, of a special episode of the program “Affaire Conclue” presented by Sophie Davant on France 2, a mirror was auctioned at an amount never approached in the program.
Coralie, 31, presents herself in front of the auctioneers with a very particular object. Indeed, the young woman bought, for only 150 euros, a Line Vautrin mirror, a famous designer of Parisian jewelry and decorative objects. The specialist Enora Alix confirms, in front of the intrigued buyers, that the mirror was indeed shaped by the French designer.
The news will then panic everyone, despite an estimate of the selling price at 6000 euros. Coralie, she hoped only 3000.
The auctions start at a few hundred euros and then suddenly take off. 6000, 15,000, 50,000 then 100,000 euros. The auction room is heating up and the young saleswoman is already in shock: “Oh no, but stop,” she says with a trembling voice which conveys her emotion. The art dealer Benoit Charraudeau will finally get the mirror for 127,000 euros, a first in the show.
The young woman cannot believe it, and neither can Internet users. Some even go so far as to say that the program “Affaire Conclue” would have organized everything and that this masterful sale would have been “rigged”. Others are already starting to work to hope to find the rare pearl in their attic: “No, but that’s it, it’s gone, I’m already looking for things at home that could sell for such a high price,” tweeted a user.
Which customer would be willing to pay 150,000 euros to buy you this mirror? #caseclosed— Maria Kel (@MariaKel1805) June 8, 2021

Inordinate bid for a mirror, but hey that’s the point of an auction too 😁 Hopefully it won’t break into 127,000 pieces 🤣— Dyhia (@DyhiaFaMB) June 9, 2021
If there you were wondering if the show is rigged! Do you have the answer #caseclosed— Fabulous Lama (@Ripix5001) June 8, 2021
The previous record was held by the professional buyer Caroline Margeridon who had spent, in 2020, the sum of 21,000 euros for a bust of Napoleon sculpted by Antoine-Denis Chaudet.
