Some 550 items in the private art collection of late Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada that graced his Paris apartment have been sold for around €2.5 million ($3 million, ¥330 million) in auction, including commission charges, fetching roughly five times the expected prices, auction operator Artcurial said Wednesday.

Among pieces of furniture and tableware sold for high prices in the Paris auction on Tuesday was a wooden horse some 2,000 years old that dates from China's Han dynasty, which went under the hammer for around €41,600 and was bought by a European collector.

In an online auction of Takada's original wardrobe creations, which ran through Wednesday, one item expected to sell for €250 to €450 fetched €3,380.
