J & JW Meeks “Stanton Hall” Chair

by John Werry on May 8, 2009

meeks stanton hall ebay J & JW Meeks Stanton Hall ChairCurrently at $202.50 and originally described as a chair made by Belter, this Meeks Stanton Hall chair is seeing some early bidding due to the low starting price and no reserve.

These chairs will hit $800 to $1500 at auction and probaly 2x that in a retail scenario.  Shipping is $175 flat-rate to the States and it is located in Saint-Hubert, Quebec.

If interested, do check the images of the back of the chair closely.  Something seems to be going on there, but I can’t tell for sure with the small size of the photos and lack of detail.  I’d ask the seller for more detailed photos.

More details at the listing.

Listing states that shipping is $175.00 + the cost of a wooden crate. Doesn’t say what they will charge for a custom built crate – but if I were serious about it I’d inquire before I bid. I’ve built custom crates before and there can be multiple hours labor (at an unspecified hourly cost) plus materials.

This Meeks Attrib. parlor suite is going on the block later today at Brunks. I dont know why but Brunk often has this style of victorian for sale at their auctions.

yeah, i was online for another item when it sold. 4200 plus BP seems like a reasonable number i thought. there must be many victorian rococo collectors in the carolinas because Brunk always seems to have it for sale, sometimes it goes very cheap too.
