A controversial auction of Greek royal treasures has concluded in London.
The collection included valuable pieces by Faberge
The collection, once owned by King George I of Greece, raised $18.4m (£9.3m) - six times pre-sale estimates.
The two-day sale at Christie's went ahead despite protests by the Greek authorities who contested the ownership of the 850 items on sale.
Greece asked the auction house to halt the sale, warning buyers could face legal action if it found the lots had been illegally exported from Greece.
Christie's said all the items had been legally obtained and in a statement said it saw "no reason for the sale not to go ahead as planned".
The auction's top lot, selling for £579,200, was a pair of Victorian silver pilgrim flasks by London's crown jeweller Robert Garrard.
King George I's silver wedding present from his parents and siblings, a pair of Danish silver soup-tureens and accessories, fetched £232,000 against an estimate of £50,000.
King George ruled Greece from 1863 to 1913. His collection also included antique silverware, paintings, Chinese jade and Faberge items from the former royal estate in Tatoi, north of Athens.
Before the auction, Greek Culture Minister Giorgos Voulgarakis told buyers to think carefully.
"If someone buys something that proves to be illegal, the state will turn both against Christie's and the buyer," he said on state TV.
He said Greece had asked the British courts to force the auction house to disclose where it obtained the pieces.
King Constantine removed the pieces from Greece in 1991
Greece abolished the monarchy in 1973, but in 1991 Greece's last monarch, King Constantine II, was allowed to export some heirlooms from the Tatoi estate.
Now living in exile in London, King Constantine strongly denied he was the unidentified seller.
Christie's said that Mr Voulgarakis himself told parliament earlier in January that the export of the items had been allowed.
And in a statement on his website, King Constantine said that "conclusive evidence" concerning the legality of exporting the items had been "repeatedly presented".
In recent years, Greece has fought hard to repatriate antiquities it says were taken illegally.
