Victorian Furniture At Grand View Antiques & Auction

by John Werry on March 7, 2009


There is a fair amount of Victorian furniture in today’s Grand View sale and the lot that popped out from the rest for me was #129 – the Pottier & Stymus-attributed, mirrored credenza, above.  There are some other famous cabinetmakers’ wares in  this sale including John Henry Belter and J & JW Meeks.  The bedstead with ebonized accents shown below is also a standout, though the photos don’t do it justice.

If you want to get in on the action, bidding starts at 11:00 am PST.  You can browse all the lots here.

I had my eye on that P&S credenza earlier in February when it was at Cowan’s auction in Ohio (lot #357). It sold for $4,406.25 (including premium) back in Feb…another example of how the good antiques get bought up and re-sold down south. I think one or more other items from that Cowan auction were re-sold at the Grand View…a bookcase comes to mind.

Speaking of bookcases, I have been the under-bidder on each of 4 bookcases that I have bid on in the last year. I’m most sad about the nice one that one that sold at Stuart Holman ($3,250, excluding premium…equal to my high bid, but out-of-phase). Looks like that one was a real beauty, but shipping costs keep my bids capped.

yeah, shipping can be a pretty big deal on a large piece of furniture

I watched the auction on line, and it appeared that the good stuff all did pretty well–testament to the stability I think of the high end.
