    The economy might be a bad for a lot of people, but the rich still have the money, and some of those well to do people have the good sense to know what to do with it.

    I wonder if this blog attracted some attention to the sale, creating something of a “Schwarz effect” in the antiques trade.

      I had to Google ‘Schwarz effect’. I very much doubt if discerning purchasers of exceptional English furniture are as capricious as the followers of a barbate on-line woodworker.
