Auctioneers, Skinner (Boston, USA), are holding their spring European Furniture & Decorative Arts auction in Boston on Friday the 8th of April 2016. While furniture isn’t very strong, British silver and early British pottery is well represented including lot 206, a Queen Ann blue dash charger (fig. 1).
Of the furniture on offer, Lot 664 is a mahogany and yew double Gothic Windsor settee (fig. 2). Made in the nineteenth-century, the settee would natheless be a steal if bought within the estimate of US$600-800.
Lot 666 is a devilishly simple oak geometric chest of drawers (fig. 3). I suspect the bun feet are later additions; however I would like to be proven wrong.
