In 2005 ENT International filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 in the US and progressively closed or sold all of its international operations. The quick collapse of the company led to a fire-sale of most of ENT's assets. In the months following the Chapter 11 filing, the liquidation team split the enormous sale across a number of auction dealers. The following is a photographic essay of some of the items surfaced by the bankruptcy auction held in 2005 at Square Mile Auctions; this small London based auction house was hired late in the process to deal with low to mid-valued items and leftovers from previous auctions; despite the low-key of the sale, the Square Mile Auctions dealers got their hands on a few items which were sold at much higher prices than originally expected thanks to their unique nature.
