chair from the Tony Duquette Tastemaker Tag Sale
One Kings Lane
I've recently discovered a new blog that I like, Sybaritic. William has a good eye.
Saturday, he featured a few of the Tony Duquette items from the One Kings Lane Tastemaker Tag Sale.
That chair from the sale really looked familiar....
Here's my chair. So similar, aren't they...?
I suspect both chairs are from the Victorian era. They are made of mache with mother-of-pearl inlay and hand-painting.
I really do love mine. You know me, I'm a neutral gal, so a piece like this kicks a room up. I bought mine at an estate auction a few years ago. At the time, I wondered if I paid too much. I think I spent around $225.
It's a safe bet the Duquette chair went for lots more. Gotta love local auctions. Don't miss them when you have the chance.
(And I like the legs on my chair better...)
