$4,594 Seems A Bit Steep
There must have been a few bidders that REALLY wanted this Victorian-era terrarium. Either they know something about it that I don’t know or they had some excess money on hand that they wanted to part with.
This terrarium just sold at Skinner’s in July for $4,594 – 61 times their top estimate. Broken glass, finish loss and probably a missing finial leave me scratching my head.
