You’d think I was on the Neal Auction payroll by the amount of furniture I’ve been profiling by them (I’m not), but as usual, their upcoming sale has a lot that Rare Victorian readers would be interested in owning, budget permitting.
To paraphrase Ving Rhames from the movie Pulp Fiction, I’m going to go medieval on you with this impressive Mitchell & Rammelsberg-attributed Etagere with matching battle axe carvings.
The etagere is a towering 104 1/2″ of heavily-grained Rosewood with extensive pierce-carved elements throughout.
There are a few condition issues which you can learn more about at the listing. Bidding starts at $3,000 with expected range to be $5,000 to $7,000. Bidding will end on May 3rd.
Also, I put together this “Greatest Hits” search for my favorite Victorian furniture items from the Neal Auction to make it easy for you to sift through it all. Check it out. Unfortunately, there is an important Roux-attributed 9-piece parlor set that is being broken into 4 lots that may never live it’s life together again. Oh well, them’s the breaks.
