Furniture, Works of Art and Clocks at Woolley and Wallis, June 2022

The upcoming Furniture, Works of Art and Clocks two-day sale will take place at Woolley and Wallis’ rooms at 51-61 Castle Street, Salisbury, Wiltshire, on Wednesday, 29th June and Thursday 30th June 2022.

There are many fine lots on offer, and a few piqued my interest: Lot 256 is a rather elegant George II mahogany desk with a very fair pre-auction estimate of GBP500 – GBP800 (AUD873 – AUD1,398; USD629 – USD1,006).

Lot 256, a George II mahogany desk, circa 1740. (Woolley and Wallis)

The top billing is lot 526, an extraordinarily fine pair of Irish-style Chinese export padouk elbow chairs (with a somewhat ambiguous Catalogue Note), carrying a pre-auction estimate of GBP15,000 – GBP20,000 (AUD26,197 – AUD34,922; USD18,861 – USD25,148).

Lot 526, A pair of George III Chinese export padouk chairs, circa 1760. (Woolley and Wallis)

    I’d be hard pressed to purchase the mahogany wood for the price they are estimating it to sell for. I like making furniture for myself BUT at these prices, wow, someone who wants antique furniture can really get some bargains. Is this common?
