The British auction house East Bristol Auction has sold glasses belonging to the leader of Indian independence Mahatma Gandhi to an American collector for £ 260,000 (more than 288,000 euros).

A House spokesman Andrew Stowe has told the BBC that it is a record for the organization, “Star Lot of the Century” as it was expected to hit around £ 15,000 for the item.
