Auction Follow Up - Pair of Gothic Revival Polychrome Chairs

Posted Thursday, March 09 by Brian

Gothic Chairs.jpg Regular readers may remember this Pair of Gothic Revival Polychrome Chairs, from back in early January. To read the original article CLICK HERE. I recommended Leslie Hindman's auction house, here in Chicago. Their original estimate based on the photos, was $2,000 to $4,000 for the pair. The chairs sold on Monday at Leslie Hindman's for $3,000 plus the buyer's premium. Most items at auction sell within their estimates, which is a tribute to the knowledge and research abilities of the auctioneers and their staffs, in a field that is notorious for its uncertainty.
