A collector's piece indeed, every detail exactly as she said

Lot 666, then, a chandelier in pieces.
Some of you may recall the strange affair of the Phantom of the Opera,
A mystery never fully explained. We are told, ladies and gentlemen,
That this is the very chandelier which figures in the famous disaster.
Our workshops have repaired it and wired parts of it for the new electric light,
Perhaps we may frighten away the ghost of so many years ago with a little illumination, gentlemen?
