News on Twitter (via. @Mcewangallery) that two drawings of soldiers 'Attributed to Jacob de Gheyn the Younger' just realised £125,000 over an estimate of £200 - £300 at Sworders in Essex.

Update - It's been pointed out on Twitter (via. @RembrandtsRoom) that the works on paper are preparatory drawings for etchings in a weapons instruction manual produced by De Gheyn for Prince Maurits in 1607.

Despite their significance, this is still a princely sum!
