eBay reports low bids on Ken Lay's desk

March 25, 2007 at 6:41 PM

HOUSTON, March 25 (UPI) -- U.S.-based Internet auction site eBay announced there have been no winners so far in the bidding for the desk of the late Enron founder Ken Lay.

The Houston Chronicle reported that after 10 days of bidding, only one person has offered the $25,000 minimum bid for the desk. However, the Chronicle reported, the bidder failed to bid the secret "reserve price" set by the non-profit Saving Animals Across Borders, which raises funds to spay and neuter dogs and cats in southeast Texas and Mexico.

The desk used by Jeff Skilling, former president and CEO of the now-defunct Enron, drew a reported bid of $7,372.

The furniture was donated to the non-profit by a group that purchased the Enron building and its contents in Houston.
