Egyptian Revival Parcel-Ebonized Rosewood Chair

You know I’ve been reading too many auction listings when fancy-schmancy decorative arts nomenclature like “parcel”, meaning partial, ends up in my blog post title. I can’t believe it popped into my head. Anyhow, in case there are some Egyptian Revival fans out there, I thought I’d mention this chair coming up for sale at Doyle’s in New York. I’ve seen similar style chairs done by Pottier & Stymus and Gustave Herter, though I haven’t done enough research to associate one of those names with this particular chair. Starting price on this chair will be $350 with an expected range of $750-$1,000. You can see the details at it’s listing.

Also coming up in the same Doyle auction will be the Belter sofa shown below. It appears to be a Rosalie with Grapes pattern. Expected range will be $4,000 to $6,000 and it starts at $2,000.john henry belter sofa Egyptian Revival Parcel Ebonized Rosewood Chair

Both will sell on April 29th, but if you miss it you’ll get a second chance on this Belter sofa pattern since Flomaton will be offering one on May 3rd. I’ll be doing a post on the Flomaton auction as we get a little closer.

    So I guess the bidders thought it was Herter. Only thing that could explain the $6,000 before buyers premium for the chair.

    Sofa did $4,500

    No question that it is Herter.
    I own one. It is the same form as the parlor set at the Victoria Mansion in Portland that has angel arms. I also have a parlor set with childrens heads on the arms.
