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.
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.
