On auction tomorrow: two Carlo Bugatti Chairs c. 1905
Walnut, ebonised wood, silk, painted parchment, copper, pewter, mother of pearl (2).
Each: 70.5 cm. (27 3/4 in.) high.
See Pillips de Pury lot 55
Their estimate is a bit stiff if compared with the chairs on auction at Christie’s below.
Update September 26:
Oops, their estimate was correct as the chairs fetched £18,750 including the 25 % buyers premium. Now it will be interesting to see what the Christie’s Bugatti Chairs will do in October…
