A snowstorm in New York doesn’t seem to have kept bidders away from Christies Interiors sale. Today the sale moved from paintings to furniture and decorative arts. I wondered if many items would sell below estimates. While results are mixed, some items are performing well–especially the hurricane shades. Some furniture also proved to have significant appeal. A George III Bachelor’s chest estimated at $1000-$1500 brought $3500. An American classical sofa estimated at $800-$1200 brought $1500. A German porcelain figure of a ‘Player at Bowls’ estimated at $800-$1200 brought $2,375. The sale also saw another early 19th century piano forte hammer at astonishingly low prices. Estimated at $800-$1200, this piano went to a lucky bidder for just $650. The sale continues.
