    THIS PIANO WAS PURCHASED BY PHIL MEDICI, IT IS NOW IN MY POSSESSION. IT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

    Manhattan resident James Siewert will be using Barbra Streisand's knives and forks when he digs into his sweet and sour chicken tonight. "I'll wash them first, of course," joked the 49-year-old, who snatched up the flatware service for six for $420 at yesterday's sale of the Funny Girl's personal possessions at Christie's East.
