A pair of gold-plated glasses worn by Indian independence hero Mahatma Gandhi has sold in Britain for #260,000 (about 288,000 euros, $340,000), the auction house said.

Gandhi was known for giving out old or unwanted pairs to those in need or those who had helped him.

The non-violent protestor gave the glasses to the vendor’s uncle while he was working for British Petroleum in South Africa during the 1920s or 30s, said the auction house.
