FOR SALE: 2 of Dominick Dunne’s Club Chairs
Published: Dec 01, 2010
At last week’s auction of Dominick Dunne’s furniture and memorabilia, we bought two blue damask-covered club chairs. They came yesterday, and we were, initially, delighted. Then we noticed that, in our living room, they seem small — they’d go better in a bedroom. Alas, we don’t need them there. So we want to find a new home for them. The text in the online catalogue: TWO VICTORIAN-STYLE UPHOLSTERED CLUB CHAIRS. Each with damask-pattern printed upholstery trimmed with bullion fringe, on turned legs; 28 1/2 x 26 1/2 x 29 1/4 in. and 28 3/4 x 28 1/2 x 28 in. Estimate: $400-$700. Sold at $550. Which is exactly what we’d like to sell them for. To see a dark picture of them, go to Stair Galleries. Click on past auctions. The Dunne auction is up top. This was lot #111.
