Buddy, can you spare me a dime?

For the North American contingent: If you live in, or happen to be in New York on the 24th of September 2012, you may be interested in popping into Christie’s upcoming sale of Important American Furniture, Folk Art and Decorative Arts.

One of the highlights of the sale is this mahogany block-front desk-and-bookcase attributed to Benjamin Frothingham (1734-1809), Charlestown, Massachusetts, 1750-1770.

    Stunning Jack. I drooled over half a dozen or more similar pieces when I was in New York last year, at the MET. Having carved a flame finial just before the trip, similar to trio shown above, I became obsessed with all the variations there on the theme. Beautiful work.
